I started working on my commission ideas this morning. I had a go at the origami shapes. I was a bit disappointed with the origami idea because the yellow pages is too fine to hold the shape and to get a section of backbone just looked odd
I also freaked out at using the originals. I seemed to have lost my confidence this week. I made a load of photocopies and went for it
I sliced up the photocopies and started playing with the text on a tea dipped and stencilled background
I photocopies one of the experiments and stencilled and doodled on top of that. I realised one of the reasons I was struggling a bit was because the colour scheme is not as bright as I usually play with. It needed more tonal contrast.
So I added more text and dancing ladies to different copies – the mojo returned
A few more layers
I added some more of the ‘yell colour printing check rainbows’ (they appear at the top of the proof page that they send you before you agree to publish your advert ) and gelato pastels because I remembered Glynis and I saying that we liked them in a meeting.
