Art from October 2020

i participated in Inktober again in 2020. This is a challenge where you must complete a picture every day for the whole of October. This means 31 drawings in 31 days. I used a combination of Alchohol Markers, India inks, Gouache and watercolour in these pictures and I drew everyone of them on a 14cm by 14cm piece of Bristol Board. Here is every single one of my Inktober drawings (including the ones I wasn't happy with)

Automatic Drawing

These drawings were completed using a process called Automatic Drawing. They were drawn on Bristol Board, with a brush pen, copic markers and a gel pen.

Exquisite Corpse collaboration

This is a collaborative piece, which I did with two other artists over Instagram. It is based on a game, which the surrealists used to call The Exquisite Corpse. This is also a popular childhood game. It is usually achieved by folding the paper into 3, but since this was conducted over the internet we all used separate pieces of paper scanned into a computer. I then stuck them together digitally using Indesign.

Artists Involved in the collaboration:

Head By Marco Pinna Pittore

Middle by Glenn Wilkinson

That's me.

Legs by Michael Burton (AKA The Cheap Soap)

Art from October 2019

October 2019 was when I started to take my visual, picture based, art more seriously. Before that I was mainly focused on other mediums, such as film and music. In October 2019 I set myself the challenge of doing a picture a day for the whole of October. It was inspired by the Inktober challenge, but it was a personal challenge, so I did not share the pictures online. I also drew them in Oil Pastel rather than Ink.
