Here is the current method :
I draw by pieces/fragments : a large size paper is folded as a map, so that I can take it wherever I go, as I often work outside, always listening to music, it prevents me from thinking too much. These drawings are in progress.
Here are some smaller sizes-tests-mess of colors, a possible variation to explore, once size questions will be adjusted. I work slowly, ’cause I am still learning bookbinding, and it takes time to get the right equipment. Hell no, I don’t get distracted 🙂
Some drawings-paintings in progress, made with Pilot pen and acrylic inks, on watercolor paper “Centenaire” 300g/m2, 56 x 76 cm.
When it comes to colors, it becomes a propper mess, but I am focusing on primary colors these days, then I hope that it will help to clarify-balance-relieve, etc…
At the same time, I am looking for exhibitions in Lille, but it is not that easy. I hope that I will find something for September. It takes time, but I have plenty of.
Some start of the school year drawings, in expectation of a large scale, maybe for a poster, dunno yet.
Happy to take part in this event about DoItYourself, which will take place on the 24th of May 2015 in London. Blimey, it’s in less than 15 days and I am running laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate…
I am working on a new collection of drawings called “Fromage de Fête” which follows on from “Fromage de Tête”, but as I am in a better mood, I have changed a letter in the tittle. I make the bookbinding, we will see how it works, but it’s a tad annoying to try to be neat. Here are some pictures of the work in progress : inside plates will be printed with my big laser, and the cover, if everything goes well, will be in fabric, a kind of silk which slip under your finger.
You can see the “Grand Fiasco rouge” at the Royal West Academy in Bristol until the 7th of June 2015, part of the collective exhibition “Drawn”. But it’s not tomorrow that we will be rolling in money, isn’t it?
Here are some details of the drawing:
Grand Fiasco rouge study 1 / inkgel pen and felt tip pen on paper / 45 x 64 cm
Grand Fiasco rouge study 2 / inkgel pen and felt tip pen on paper / 59 x 84 cm
Grand Fiasco rouge / inkgel pen on paper / 60 x 80 cm
Test prints, yet to be classily bound…
