Playing Around

It’s been a busy few months with work, volunteering and the holidays coming up. I’m happy I’ve been able to put aside a little time to play around with some new techniques and tools. Keeping it loose this new take on George and the Dragon was inspired by word play/association. I wrote down a list of adjectives. The list was cut up and words were randomly grouped together. These in turn inspired images – this illustration came from ‘exhausted’, ‘gallant’ and ‘abusive’. The words are also found scattered in the painting.


Additionally, I’ve been playing around with Gesso and newspaper transfer for an all school mosaic project. I’m looking forward to seeing the results after going through the hands of 800+ elementary school kids adding their individual illustrations.
