The Creative Plan – Liquid Pencils

By this stage I was feeling a bit defeated with this medium but I was determined to persevere. However, I was less focussed on doing something in my own style but instead wanted to unlock what Liquid Pencils are all about. I picked a subject that I felt would lend itself to the character of...

The Creative Plan – Liquid Pencils

With Rewettable Paints “Fire & Ice” After transferring the lettering I created earlier to watercolour paper, I wetted the surface to allow the paints to spread and blend. I’m not sure if it was a good quality paper as it showed a bit of “bubbling” with the amount of water I applied. If I was... Continue Reading →

The Creative Plan – Liquid Pencils

Now that all the samples are done it was time to create art with them. However, I still have no idea what to expect from this medium (see Day 1’s warning). Applying it Straight For this exercise I used Permanent Yellow and Blue with a long-haird brush. Results W/D - It leaves behind very vibrant,... Continue Reading →

The Creative Plan – Liquid Pencils

This is a brand mew medium for me. I have seen artwork created with liquid pencil, mostly as finished pieces, but I’ve no first hand experience with it. I went to the local art store hoping to buy a jar but they only had a set of twelve tubes. In fact, I was lucky to... Continue Reading →

With my background in design I appreciate typography and type design. Although I don’t believe I have any interest in designing type as a future career, it is however, one of those artistic disciplines that I do admire, but only when executed correctly. Despite the expansive availability of free fonts... Continue Reading →

The Creative Plan – Graphite Pencil: Expressive drawing

After spending so much time doing controlled exercises it was time to get messy. Expressive drawing still benefits from some control or discipline, but to me it’s drawing with feeling and energy, using your whole arm to draw and not worrying about mistakes. Even if it's not your thing practicing this kind of drawing is... Continue Reading →

The Creative Plan – Graphite Pencil: Patterns

I’ve never really been into pattern/shape making. It’s something I would only subconsciously do when I’m in a meeting or on hold wth customer service purely to stop me from falling asleep. Don't get me wrong, patterns are cool. I love patterned fabric and am envoius of designers who can balance multiple shapes as well... Continue Reading →
