week 16- book cover

little red riding hood


Week 16 asked us to do a book cover (including a mock up of title and author).  I had a lot of fun with this, I was playing with ink and nib, I found copic pens a little too restricting for some work that I like to do, but nib pen seems to keep that free flowing energy happening. With this one I splatted some ink, using pen and brush I developed this image. Looking at it now, I can see echoes of Brett Whiteley whose work I was very into in art school and his work still fascinates me now. Titles were done in PS.
