I found this whilst clearing through files, unfortunately I dont have the original any more, I think I gave it to one of my younger relatives, but I must have done this when I was about 14/15 - jeeeeeez 13 years ago!!!!!
*just for the record, this was like A2 size, so about 4/6 times Letter size (for our American cousins - love you all!)
Cover for a leaflet promoting the graphics course that I had 5 minutes to produce before the open evening yesterday. Not the best…….
This is a piece of art I did when I was 17.
I sat and watched the entirety of the 9/11 attacks in the common room at school, and it was so surreal. Scary like nothing that has ever scared me before or since - there was so much happening and no one had answers.
I sat in the common room over the next couple of days, and what started out as a doodle became this piece, all done in pen and ink, as a tribute to all those affected by the atrocity.
The headmaster of my school wanted the art students to make a tribute the school could hang to remember those involved, I went and got it framed (cost a lot to a 17 year old with no money) I took mine along and he told me that it wasn’t happy enough and that he would never hang something like this.
Sort of put me off ever really doing another art piece to this day.
The piece was entitled, Faceless Terror
Someone I know who’s a photographer, well just getting into it wanted to do some test shots with me a while back, completely forgot all about it until they sent me this!
After a long hard week, putting up with jet lag, running a day late and lots of worky stuff, I have a light on the horizon, a nice relaxing weekend, a huge chicken caesar salad to make and eat, going to see the papershapes tomorrow (click and follow!!!!) see my nana j and give her her canadian presents, and chill.
One of my students, Kinga, Made a magazine for her final project - this is the cover.
Lara is the model.
I love to do pen and ink drawing. I don’t do it enough these days, these flats were fun to draw though…
