Cartoons

30 Dec
Kooky Scientist

Here is some work in progress . I have begun recently a series of cartoon posters with elements of graffitti  art in the background these drawing/painting are made on full size canson art paper (50cm x 65cm) and are made with a variety of mediums including magic markers , watercolour pencils, spray paint and drippy markers. I am finding the whole experience quite freeing and a departure from my more precise penwork featured in earlier posts. I have been pencilling in the characters directly and masking out areas to spray paint .It is great fun and a little messy. But it definately makes a change to see smudges , drips and scribbles directly on my work in the place of spotless white paper. I am enjoying the mixed media so much I am thinking of adding elements of collage and maybe fabric to the posters.The characters are Tokyo street kids but they have been made to look like cartoon characters.
