After thinking about it too much, have decided that mirroring looks best so I started again, made it bigger, stopped fussing with colours but continued reflecting/repeating rhomboids by hand so it doesn’t look psychotic digital. The elements are hand drawn so I didn’t want it to lose that aesthetic completely. For WapWapWah. Blah.


RHOMBOID (plural)


W.W.W – testers

Background colour from high resolution scan of ink washes – colour scheme from previous rocket delight-o’s. Top or bottom, top or bottom.

W.W.W – Colour [full circle]

Feels appropriate that adding colour is linking the last stage of this project back to it’s “launch”, that is to say, Rockets.

W.W.W.Wah Nails

March 30, 2010

Polly Philp has a window display at Wah Nails and there will be other eye sex inside to which I’m contributing this One. It is development of W.W.W and has been an absolute beast to put together. Much too-ing and throwing of mouses as isolated rhomboids from previous sketches are tesselated. It’s a symmetrical pattern but with each unit a different crop, the over all effect (I’m hoping) is a chaotic regularity that allows the viewer to see recognisable forms. Going with Philp’s theme of divination, I choose “aeromancy” – the art of fortune and fate from the clouds. Close-up ( background) –

Reflective silhouetting, excello colours. From the opening credits to the new joy in my life – Wonders of the Solar System.

W.W.W – What it’s what

March 12, 2010

Or rather, what I’ve been staring at with Rik Mayall eyes.

From the supreme National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration. I’ve been looking at alot of cloud formations, particularly tornadic ones that have good contrast there-to-art-fore, easier to draw. Solarised, sort of –

And this piece of thing. Dad says meteor, I say nay, it’s a lump of solidified molt metal. In the woods behind my dad’s house there is a quarry and an old copper mine so I deduced it is from one. This Thing was collected away and ago by one of the Quinn number and it’s now on my desk, pleased that it has found use so quickly –

Layer one of five colour screen. More when cramp in small finger desists. For Sweet R. There will also be a rocket.

W.W.W – afterthought

March 2, 2010

Old faithful, repetitive cloud formations, colouring and line are very correct. Interesting adaption of natural form into repeating patterns. Like vocals being repeated to point of distortion and instrumental/percussion. Also Ni Yuan Lu –

Dejavous. From Pete.

W.W.W. – Refined Concept

March 2, 2010

A.P.O.T.D – brill. Star trails reflected in lake. Colours are impossibly good. As is –

Clouds, rocket, night. It’s a digital photo obviously but there are elements that apply to the reflective, hand coloured concept. etc.
