There hasn’t be enough time to start on my silhouette project that is bouncing around in my head, but I realized I had a post I never finalized. Sorry this is old news, but it doesn’t mean I can’t share the work I created. 🙂
The same people who organized The Sketchbook Project had another project last year called the 4×6 Exchange. Their idea was to have creatives sign up for an art swap on a global scale. The artists who wanted to join in the fun had to mail Art House HQ a 4″x6″ piece of artwork, and it would be exchanged with another artist’s submission. I have done something similar to this but with a bunch of Twitter artists (@davidpringle taking the lead). So, I knew right away I wanted to be a part of the project.
Of course, I was in the doodle mood and broke out the Sharpies. Most of the time when I draw these doodles, I end up deciding whether I really want to add the acrylic or leave it alone. To preserve what it looked like before color, I scan it and that way I always have a before and after image to keep.
The BEFORE is only Sharpie ink. The AFTER is acrylic on top of the Sharpie.
