Come Together, 08/04/11

This took a LOT of hours, I wasn't counting, so I can't say how many for certain, and some of that was distracted time whilst playing on the internets.
.
This is a piece of 11 x 14" black mattboard, drawn, cut, and peeled with graphite and xacto knife, and then colored with fine point sharpies. This is part of my lotus series, because there's a wee lotus in the energy that's being created between the two peoples' hands. Here's the WIP: [link] So let me just explain this, because I've been getting some shit from a couple people. if you cut partly into the mattboard, and then peel the black off of it, you get a white fuzzy nubbly inside. the depth is about a millimeter. To cut the whole piece took a few hours, and then you've got the design, but it's white. It took several hours to color it, and the color has a fuzzy quality because of the texture of the inside of the mattboard. It's an interesting process, and I recommend giving it a go, if you're nasty. ;)

The gateways between brains are opened and ideas are exchanged creating knowledge revolution.

flat prints and such available here. t shirts and such available in my café press shop [link] . the original is not available because i gave it to my brother for his birthday. So buy prints! tell your friends!

Whoa! This is beautiful! I especially love how you used many different bands of color instead of just having it a solid fill. You have wonderful talent. :clap:

I like that you cut away the black top of the matte board to color on the white. I'll probably steal the technique in the distant future.

One quick question,
Why did you choose Fine Point Sharpies to color it in with?

A smart person would have used acrylic paints or something else
I probably would have done the same thing as you :lol:

CATtheMinion Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011   General Artist
actually, I'm quite brilliant. :iconsothereplz:
I've done artwork like this before, with colored pencil, and with crayon. I've done my lotus series in acrylic paint too, but not in combination with mattboard. I'm actually really pleased with the sharpies, they color fill the mattboard much better than anything else I've used. Also, I'm pretty broke and I haven't been able to afford any new art supplies in a long time. I only have the sharpies because they were $12 and I made my mom get them for me last fall. I actually stole the mattboard off of a photo from my photography class in college. :paranoid:
I really need to work on my website but you can see most of my lotus series here if you're curious: [link]

haha, I don't doubt that.

It makes sense, now that
you've explained it some ;p

I always run out of supplies too,
that's why I love photography
there isn't a lot you need for it :XD:

Your other art is beautiful as well :nod:

Very interesting work! Just as someone who works with Sharpies as well, why do you decide to use fine-tip instead of the normal? The normal gets more coverage obviously, so it might help with the white spots? Just curious. Very cool stuff, though! :)
