Mucha Book (Work in Progress)

So, I’m finally rolling on my Mucha book. Here’s a detail shot of the pencils to tide you over until I get the inks and colors done. (Hopefully by the end of the week)

I was inspired by Mucha’s famous posters of Sarah Bernhardt and thought I would try to update the look with a contemporary artist and choose the amazing singer, Terra Naomi. Check her out if you aren’t familiar with her. She has a gorgeous voice. (I love this version of the Leonard Cohen classic, Hallelujah)

Option 1 or 2

I have forgotten to ask you all which option we have decided on? Could you remind me please? I am a bit unsure, but it seems to me that majority is for developing each book in its own chosen artist's style. Thanks for your help with this one.

Edgar Brandt's moly ready to go to Slovakia!

My interpretation of Edgar Brandt's style is laden with heavy black lines and thick textures underneath. My aim was to create a stylistic feature which would interwove my style with his. In the back pocket of my moly, you will find little cards with Brandt's lamp (just like the one you can see glued to the back of my moly's cover). They are for you guys. I have put in the pocket enough cards for each artist in this exchange. Take care.

Gods and Monsters, ready to go

It is done, and it is going out to Melissa on Monday! It took a little longer than anticipated to complete because I have, obviously, gone a little OCD on it trying to keep with the spirit of Beardsley. Book's theme is "Gods and Monsters", have fun with it! 

Gods and Monsters: Huntress: moly_x_82, albina's book, albina's entry

...a bit of randomness: in one of Beardsley drawings there is a dog in a "jacket", I simply could not resist...

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I am lagging a bit behind... but I am still at it. My moly should be ready for shipping by the end of the week :)

Here is my sign in page and first entry in my Shepard Fairey book. I had to add some of the giant images and a take on the Obama poster with one of my characters. I chose to hand draw everything as opposed to wheat-pasting in the book. I think if I get another entry in this book I may try and do a little wheat pasting action. Hope everyone likes it. It will be awesome to see everyone's interpretation of Shepard's work.

Barbara's book ready to leave

So I prepared my book and it is ready to leave for BelleVue! Now I just have to find back her address... :-)
Here are pictures of the front pages and of the first 3 pages with the Alechinsky theme. I painted some memories, choices of life and some favorite moments of every day and of always, trying to figure out who I am. What are your choices of life and are you happy with them?
The central painting is on a collage with watercolor paper and the promenade marginale is with ink and watercolor on japanese paper collage.
Have fun !
