Finally cobbled this together from the scans. I haven't stopped to really look, what it's like as a digital image. While it wasn't bad to work at twice the size; I've learned I need a much larger board for this.
Maybe this is the FIN for this one, maybe I'll tweak some more, just in case I'm trying to avoid new work. 😛
This took long, and in all likelihood, I'm going to separate the two sheets, and shelf them once they are scanned.
Working through this did help me get comfortable with using Sumi sticks, which have their own unique challenges.
20s flip though of the 4 or 5 sheets left clipped to the board. All of this is just to keep myself from losing momentum completely.
I haven't felt like putting up any of it, since it's all more of the same shit.
I looked for some self-deprecating, funny little audio clip to put over this, but couldn't find any suitable CC audio in time.
"Winter above deep creak: The making of a lithograph"
Full 52m video documenting the entire process of a full colour offset lithograph, drawn by hand on the plates.
Has anyone here ever seen one of Taylor Mazer's miniature pen and ink drawings? It's quite fantastic, watching him build one of them.
He even teaches an Advanced Inking Techniques class in Michigan, where he's from. And of course, there is a website and Patreon which I have been planning to get into for the longest time.
Some thickness to start the week. ('Thiccness'? Not based on anyone).
The link between this and my previous 'cry-cry' toots? I wasn't feeling up to pick up the pen and start, so tried doodling with a brush, and the last of the liquid ink I have left. Eventually the shapes suggested a human form, and I went with it.
I draw in Pen&Ink.
