Art House CoOp – Sketchbook Project 2011 for the Brooklyn Art Library . I let them select my theme and they sent me “Great Hopes and Massive Failures”. But of course I had to tweak it and I will add, “Unshakable Determination” to the concept. I used Prang Graphite, Cretacolor Pencil, General’s White Charcoal and Sharpie (the pen) on Moleskine thin, flimsy paper (the required format) with Prismacolor Workable Fixative. I’m considering Grumbacher’s Tuffilm Final Fixative to lock it all together. Not sure where I’m going with this, but hey, that’s half the fun. The whole book will be on my Flicker feed (eventually)!
Red was to go post haste to Gramma’s house, but the forest of flowers was too tempting and she left the path. The delight of the beautiful flowers caused Red to pick the white and pink blooms for her grandmothers table. Wolf also delighted in the forest of flowers and convinced Red that the crimson flowers were the most exquisite in the land. And they were. Red accepted Wolf’s invitation to add his personal favorites to her bouquet and wished her good fortune and good-bye. . . . . . .
There is something about art on your feet. I love these and making these are a blast. I received a request for custom sharpie art on Chuck Taylor AllStars. I’ve posted finished art before, but here is a progression if you’re interested.
Good bye Converse Chuck Taylor AllStars. May you live a full existence with Renee’s favorite things covered in Sharpie ink. Pheww, I need another cup of coffee.
Oh, and these are going on Facebook Project 50/1.
After Kim’s Birthday Shoes, I wanted to keep going. So Brittany and Jack are the newest recipient of Sharpie Art on Converse All Star tennis shoes. Sharpie’s metalic color worked awesome for rendering metal on Jack’s shoes. OK, I still have a pair to do for me.
Thanks, Sharpie for all the great INK!!
