Here's the new Black Drawing. As I was starting Black Drawing X I was asked by the artist who was designing the LOSS CD packaging. Justin Stubbs. He said he'd like for me to do his bands new album cover. (Father Befouled)
I was totally into doing more work with bands....the concept Justin presented was the inverted figure with lots of ruined architecture almost MC Escher gone bad. I tried a few different layouts to see what would work the best...even having the upside down figure in water as a reflection with the other elements surrounding it...this seemed to work the best.
pen and ink on bristol board. (I use white paper this isn't scratch board, just regular comic 2ply although this is done larger and I picked up my own bristol board for this piece because of the dimensions and size I wanted to work at) ALL of the tones are done with cross hatching and line work in pen there are NO washes or marker on these pieces. No PS effects on this either. No white paint either....the white you see is the white of the paper.
it was one pen actually...I used a koh i noor 6X0. that's it. (I did pencil the piece out fully though before inking it. I am not crazy.
prints will be available for this piece (and all the black drawings) just note me.
To follow the entire black drawing series start at Suicide King and work forward.
