three carvings and test prints
I made these 3 carvings and test prints last week while my computer was dead, and after the Miniature Art Hunt.
I want to thank William Hessian for showing me the "automatic" drawing technique he uses/teaches some times. It has really helped me a lot.
I left these carvings unfinished so that I could get input in class on where to go with them next -- what kind of background to do, etc. The test prints are made with heavy sketch book paper and old ink...not the best materials for printmaking, but at least I could get an idea of how the carvings look. I am very happy with them. Especially the bear-like creature.
This sort of lost and sad looking guy emerged on the day I lost my wonderful new cat, Lord Jagged. We were truly soulmates. After only ten days it turned out that he was extremely ill and had to be euthanized. I was/am crushed.
I really love this bear-like creature.
I know I will leave the arms white, but I may give it a furry looking design.
see...I would NEVER be able to just sit down and draw something like this
this guy will probably get a few small changes, but I like his spotted coat
