Graphic design geometric tasks

10 March 2017

Using art brushes (filled with ink) and Prockey and Maped pens to experiment on cartridge paper with a graphic design balance of colours and angular shapes. The ink creates a good textural contrast with the less flat more marky pens which helps with variety in the design. We have aimed for some pieces to keep the tones of the colours as similar as possible whilst looking for colour contrast (which can be a bit tricky!), others have tonal as well as colour contrast in them.

‘Future’ – a publication for the Aye Write! Glasgow book festival

27 February 2017

Preparation for the publication of ‘Future’ for the Aye Write! book festival in March, a book of writing and drawing by adult learners across Glasgow. Have laid out the 50 pages here, placing at least one piece of written work and one drawing by each of the thirty five contributors. Not enough pages for so much creative output since January!

Enjoying working with the learners, Stuart Corkindale (2 Hours Limited) and Glasgow Life on this project. The theme is ‘Learning for the Future’ which has been open to imaginative and quirky ideas and contemplation about our possible urban scape, society, technology and day to day life in the future.

G15 Youth Project in Drumchapel

20 February 2017

Great fun to work with the talented creative young people at G15 Youth Project in Drumchapel over January and February. We used all sorts of materials from paints, to ink with sticks and bamboo pens, felt and paint pens – we even included pencil by popular demand! Themes the young folk worked on included nature, cityscape, manga, figure drawing, doodling and developing their own visual interests.

Manga and anime themed drawing group

3 February 2017

Workshop using sketchbooks, graphite and pens – manga and anime themed drawing workshop at G15 Youth Project, Drumchapel.

An exciting challenge to develop compositions and ideas. Especially working with figure drawing and portraits with the simplifed strokes and manga style proportions. For creative inspiration we looked at images by Gosho Aoyama (Detective Conan), Guardians of the Galaxy, One Piece, Studio Ghibli such as Totoro and Princess Mononoke, and a fabulous dragon by Hokusai.
