What I've Been Up To

Making an album cover for the band Gold and Glass. I just finished step three right this second. Photos are wonky because I am tired and the scanner isn't big enough for the thing. It is a silhouette cut-out and eventually will be accentuated with embroidered flowers and lines. The rule was four colors only, (black, white and two pinks) so texturize, texturize, texturize is my current mantra. The boys wanted a car parked under a Japanese Saucer Magnolia tree, with a suggestion of a person in the car.

Step One: Sketch (blown up from 1x1 inch)

Step Two: First Mock up (9.5" x 9.5") Sharpie and Chalk

Step Three: Final Draft Base (white silhouette shapes over black gouache layer)

Next step: days of embroidery. Days.
