We did experiment with a lot of different techniques. The image above is a mixture of collage, stencils and Photoshop)
Below Stencils, collage and chinese ink:
Javier did show his techniques in special videos. Each week was around another theme. We also did get a lot of theory about masters of influence, finding your voice, the essence of a character and composition.
An experiment wirh chinese ink:
One assignment was to do 20 'covers'. It had to be quick drawings in the same style, that could be covers for a sketchbook project. I chose faces as subject, but in a different way from what I normally do. Here are some of them:
One of the techniques we did was monotype. I did experiment before with it. But it is fun to explore it more,. I do like the effect of this technique a lot:
In the end we had to make a final work. It will be published in a (digital) catalogue for the Bologna Bookfair. I did do some mixed media experiments I'm not sure which one to choose as final one. I think I will go for the wolf in the forest (the first image of this post)
Which one would you choose?
I hope to continue with experimenting. And to explore 'my voice' more and more. And use the techniques I've learned in the books and other works I make and wanna make ... ;-)
For those who are interested: Here's a link to this class. I think it will be repeated in the future. Highly recommended!
