INKY DESIGN ON THE GO: Lungs
INKY DESIGN ON THE GO: ‘Lungs’
Exploring the Black line….
Today’s challenge is to get as much as I can done on this piece, my working title … LUNGS
Ok , so the design is symmetrical (as ever!)
My design focus?… Creating PATTERN… within each motif & also within the INTERSECTIONS of the lines …. (so that each motif flows into the other, to create an overall pattern)
Nothing more to it than picking motifs that I like …. starting with the geometric death heads I wanted to lead onto lungs…and … a ribcage …. stylised (of course) to create interesting patterns … I then just ‘go with the flow’ and see where the black lines take me… so, part planned /part, make it up as a go along and see what shapes appear
Alot of my recent stuff has been inspired by the anatomy & biology of the human body (this time the lungs) and the anatomy of dissected plants …. I love old anatomy drawings and biodiversity illustration plates… (although I am not skilled enough to draw it all anatomically correct!) … you can see some of my collection of images to get me thinking… on pinterest.. (where i spend far too much time) … http://pinterest.com/punctured
Drawn with a geometric twist ….
Anyway, here it is as it stands… hoping my issues of the ink spraying and the needle sticking, dragging and bouncing sorts itself out soon… otherwise i am going to end up messing this one up & starting over! The needle flows so much easier through skin.. !
I will pop a few more images on , as I go…
