Wow! I’m running out of ink. Pardon me for getting art geeky here, but I’m using a variety of methods and new stuff here. The red is a combination of Micron pen, with a layer of red Identi Pen from Sakura Products. It’s a more durable form of marker used by collectors and celebrities for a long lasting, fade resistant signature on collectibles and merchandise. Damn pity I only bought one.
I was going to do a layer of Speedball super black, but I’m trying to keep from warping the paper. My Speedball super red kept clogging the pen nib, and it’s been a little tricky to deal with. The Sakura reds are giving me a better result.
The black is a combination of Micron black, Faber india ink marker, and Pentel brush pen. I think the marker and brush pens are out of ink.
The blue was very tricky. I want something with a light hue, but the transparency is causing problems in overlap. What I have is a result of Micron, combined with Rowney acrylic ink.
There’s still quite a bit left to go, and it’s like a kinky art chess game. I wish I had a blue metalic gel pen like in the collar. If I find one, that may replace the dildo. I still need to plan the laces on the hood, the seam on the hood on the left, and a plan for the padlock and ball gag.
This started as a painting, and that work in progress is currently in the garage. Thing is I was working on the night sky, and it’s not working out so far. But the image itself was strong, so I transferred it to bristol. Looking at the post, I may need to rework the head.
Painting has been great, but I’m feeling the need to work more in my roots in pen and ink lately. I’ve done some great work in acrylic, but new pieces are not coming together quickly enough and often, painting is not my strongest work. In addition, my printing options are currently limited with acrylic. Which means I have to charge more for original acrylic art, and I can’t make stickers, cards or prints from my paintings.
More to come, by the way, the La Luz de Jesus Coaster Show is still on display. Check out their catalog at http://laluzdejesus.com/the-5th-annual-coaster-show-harold-fox/#more-21998
Now that some of the coaster traffic has gone by,I can update again. I appreciate the love, but don’t know how ready folks are for these upcoming posts.
Sin City Gallery’s 12 Inches of Sin opens this month, and I’m very curious about the show. I was in no mood to rush to another deadline, but am down to cook up submissions for next year’s show. So this is the first piece I’m whipping up for 2018.
