The Moon, the Sun, and Earth Mama
Here's a doodle of mine. Colored pencils, black Sharpie ink pen on a flour sack dishcloth. The square in this drawing measures one inch, putting scale into perspective. I have been wanting to create wearable art, artsy pieces, etc. Drawings on fabric, to be cut and sewn into garments? This has been done before. I know I can do this, too; however, definitely must concentrate on scale, as a one-inch drawing won't do. Enlarge, enlarge, enlarge!!! Design and pattern selection will follow when my "to do" list is achieved.
1. Think large, Christine
2. Visit Art Supply Warehouse in Westminster, CA
3. Experiment with various organic fabrics, fabric paints, ink, etc.
Here's another recent one of mine. Initially, I drew the round face using Adobe Illustrator...the circle, the eyes, the lips, coloration. Trying to adhere image to fabric, using iron-on sheet, was a huge failure, an icky, peely failure. Did I not follow the directions? (I did not.) In a moment of artsy frenzy I got out my Sharpie and colored pencils and began to doodle. I don't know why my drawings come out so other-worldly weird. Once doodled upon, I took a picture and loaded it onto PhotoSuite; hence, I was able to add the mirage image that pools around the bottom of the drawing. I love the effect.
