Just a Little Bit of Collage

October 21, 2011

See the post for complete details.

Above: Two Pentel Pocket Brush Pen Sketches on different types of paper (one printed with a grid, the other white, almost cardstock). The sketches were trimmed and glued over a pre-painted background in a 9 x 12 Fabriano Venezia journal I use in the studio.

I have a lot of reorganization going on right now and didn't want to miss a Friday posting. This is a collaged spread I did before Monday's collage meeting at the MCBA Visual Journal Collective. (I hope to have time to do some scanning for that soon.)

I put the man's face down weeks before the dog fell into place. I never felt like writing anything on the page spread. Then I added the dog, and still don't feel like adding anything to the spread. But yesterday was a frustrating day with computer software, and I can say that I feel exactly like the dog looks!

I'll hope to get caught up in the next few days. Even more important—I'm looking forward to a lot of sketching this weekend. There is something exciting and comforting about moving the brush pen across the page, carving out black lines of thick and thin. I hope you too find time to sketch and restore yourself.

    Carol, I have to admit I don’t know what L. Freud looks like (just the art). I’ll have to go look. This is someone else who had interesting hair! Well at least interesting to draw with a brush pen. And that’s pretty much what mattered at the moment. Thanks for writing.

    I thought the same thing! Lucian, R.I.P.
