Here are a couple of prints that I have done with the lino cut I previously used for rubbings in gallery 96. I printed them with acrylic paints and tidied them up with a Sharpie, the paint gave some interesting textures but overall I think I prefer the effect I got using the lino cuts for rubbings. Hope you all have an enjoyable Halloween.
David Lee Ingersoll, Seattle,USA (Marker and coloured pencil) skook.blogspot.com The postman has just been and I've got the last piece, so here it is: ......and here is the grand unveiling of the complete piece. A huge thanks to David for a beautiful piece of work, I'm sure you'll all agree. Please visit Gallery 57 to check out David's other wonderful submissions.
David Lee Ingersoll, Seattle,USA (Marker and coloured pencil) skook.blogspot.com The penultimate piece, are we looking at a two-headed monster? Time will tell, not too long hopefully, it all depends on the UK post strike we are suffering at the moment.
David Lee Ingersoll, Seattle,USA (Marker and coloured pencil) skook.blogspot.com Part six today, part seven has arrived too and will be up tomorrow so we are just waiting on the final piece of the jigsaw.
It's the hundredth gallery today and while the amount of submissions has definitely declined, the quality remains very high. We are seeing artists sending in second and third cards as they think of new ways of illustrating the monster.
Part 4 of David Lee Ingersoll's eight-part thriller, Seattle,USA (Marker and coloured pencil) skook.blogspot.com
The second piece of the puzzle has arrived. Actually, the number on the back is #1, so the first piece of the puzzle has arrived second. Work that one out! I've got a feeling my initial guess about the card in gallery 97 being a leg was spot on because this sure looks like it's partner. Once the whole collection has made it's appearance, I will photograph the lot together and post them to a gallery of their own.
David, this one intrigues me because I'm not sure what I'm looking at. It looks like flames at the bottom and them almost looks like a green knee hanging out of a torn black drainpipe jeans leg. Forgive my ignorance but the more I look at it, the more it sucks me in. Leave a comment and let me know how far out I am with my interpretation, and even if I have published your card the correct way up as I have just turned it over and it looks like flaming buildings now. Anybody else care to leave their opinions please do, it may be that I am missing the blindingly obvious!
Check out my new blog Sleevie Wonders for a new art project that I hope you will take to your collective bosoms as enthusiastically as "A Patchwork Of Flesh". Come and visit and let me know your thoughts.
Sometimes an envelope comes in and when I open it, the art inside blows me away. Never more so than the package I received yesterday from Mr Cavin, in Washington DC, USA. Everything about the contents oozed class, so I've not only published the four cards that Mr Cavin drew but everything else that came with it. All illustrations are in ink. "The Process #1: Materials"
"In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to other eyes as mine see it." - Michelangelo
"All works of nature created by God in Heaven and Earth are works of sculpture." - Benvenuto Cellini
"The Process #2: Construction" "The Process #3: Fluids" "The Process #4: Electricity"
Here are the extra details that made the package so enjoyable. The first two are protective backers that held the cards safely in transit. Does V.F. stand for Victor Frankenstein?
This is a drawing that was on the greetings card that Mr Cavin wrote his message on.
And finally, even the envelope was beautifully illustrated
Mr Cavin wrote that he has been following "A Patchwork Of Flesh" since about gallery 14 when he was traveling in Southern Vietnam, making it difficult to send an entry himself. He put the project off until his return to the States and has spent weeks producing these pieces of art. A big thanks to him for the time and effort he has obviously put into them, I'm sure you'll all agree it was time well spent and that the results are gorgeous.
I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, title and anything else you care to add on the back.
I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.
I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.
If you are reading this and would like to get involved, please send a portrait to:
A Patchwork Of Flesh 45 Silversea Drive Westcliff on Sea Essex SS0 9XD United Kingdom
Each card I receive will be uploaded here to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.
