So in the past year or so, I seem to have become a proper "artist" and stuff, or, at least, a couple of people have been foolish enough to give me art shows and put my stuff on display.
So I'm gonna make a thread where I can stick new work / stuff in progress or whatever and ppl can go "hey that's neat" or "ugh y cant u draw?" (hopefully the former rather than the latter.) Pls be nice, tho, coz I am a sensitive little flower.
And also I can leave an interweb record of artwork that I like or was "influenced" by - or you can make suggestions of artists / work that I might like? That'd be pretty cool, too.
Stuff of mine occasionally goes on sale (for example, I designed Xmas cards for K0w3tha$ K3rnewek last year) so I might link to it here, too, if that's alright - I thought about putting this on ILX Marketplace but since I don't have anything on sale right now I thought this would be a gallery for the time being, rather than a sales pitch (ugh).
p.s. yes, it's hilarious to me that I've been given actual shows and stuff under that name but, like, by the time I'd started getting attention and publicity it was too late to point it out, so I just went with it. Please keep meta identity sniping and "researching yr life" stuff out of this thread? I'd appreciate that. Thanks.

i'd never thought of a rainbow in those terms before but it's such a great perspective on it - i love how you depict how etymology can provide such an awesome twist on something very everyday.
this one, i just love the colour of the sea - you could lose yourself in it.
love how you make buildings seem like living things, too.

The central ornamental curve of the wave in the one lex posted is lovely.
― Fizzles, Sunday, 5 February 2012 10:41 (1 year ago) Permalink
Aw, thank you all. I'm glad that you like them!
Yes, that ornamental curve amuses me, as well. I'm kind of completely obsessed with waves, and how something so chaotic and random is also so regular and ordered in a fractal sort of sense - that if you render seafoam down it turns into swirls and paisleys. I was really trying to do it with this one, that when big waves hit the end of the harbour wall in Portreath, there's this explosion of water, but also, if you watch it over and again you spot the pattern, and instead of random foam it looks almost like tendrils of filigree lace:
It's a very deliberate thing, trying to make buildings look like living things, I deliberately make the windows look glassy, like eyes, so you can see the "soul" of the building as it were. I love flocks of cottages perched on a hillside, like birds or sheep, you can really see the personality of them.
^^^^this is totally a flock of birds, like the gulls that gather on the harbour wall.

Your work is amazing. I especially love how you use such specific, beautiful colours. Difficult to explain but they are unique, in that I rarely see these specific shades of colour anywhere else. It makes your work look very personal and cohesive.

Ha ha I shouldn't spill my secrets - but the colours are usually sampled off photos of the Cornish coast. :)
I'll have a think on trying to express materials and methodology, Sick - obviously (I'm fairly certain you saw my sketchbook in St Ives?) they are done in pen and ink on paper first, and scanned and coloured in, in photoshop. I don't know if that's what you're asking, or you're asking, like, how do I come up with them?
It's weird because when I sit down to draw, I usually have an absolute vision in my head, of how I want the drawing to look, like I can already see it, all I have to do is write it down. But I'm actually such a poor draughtspeson that by the time it gets on paper, it's usually completely warped and looks nothing *like* what I thought it was going to look like - which is sometimes frustrating, but also, sometimes the thing that ends on the paper ends up even better - because I abstracted things in a more interesting way. That that is half the trick - it's not drawing "what the thing looks like" but drawing this idealised memory of what the thing looks like, like a distorted memory from childhood.
It's the same as drawing portraits, that you never draw what the person really looks like - that's the last thing you want to draw. But you have to draw what *they* think they look like. (Or better yet, what you think they look like when you see them in your internal eye.)
Sorry, I'm expressing this badly. I'm completely shit at explaining my stuff. I'm much better at just doing it.

They're tiny! That's the funny thing, when I draw them, they're like A5 or A6 because I have to have a sketchbook that will fit in my bag or my parka pockets when I'm hiking. They display bigger because I scan them at 200 or 300 dpi. I sometimes think it would be nice to make poster sized prints of them, but I worry that the mistakes would also be blown up really large. T-shirt sized is pretty much the largest I've ever gone.

Oh wait, I think I know what you're talking about. No, that wasn't an offer - that was a suggestion, that someone said I should do prints or whatever to sell in tourist shops and I got the vapours over the idea of being one of those artists who sits in a glass box in St Ives hawking bad paintings of the sea to tourists. It was someone's suggestion as to something I should do, it was in no way any concrete plan or offer or anything like that!

― Aimless, Sunday, 5 February 2012 19:34 (1 year ago) Permalink
Having a look through the flickr set, which is excellent (particularly like the pleached alley of Cornish trees), trying to work out what things I'm reminded of when I'm looking at them. One is the illustrations for Ursula K Le Guin's Earthsea books (the first three anyway) by Ruth Robbins. Hard to find a lot of them, but there are some rather small examples here.
Another element is the Age of Enchantment exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery a few, well, probably something like seven (really? god!) years ago. Beardsley, Dulac and their Contemporaries was its subject. There's some material here. I think it musts be the combination of swirling, flowing design (high gothic line?) and a sort of mysticism or immanence, frequently Celtic. Not sure how much there is in this, but it kept nagging at me as I was going through the flickr set.
I guess Alasdair Gray as well.

― StanM, Sunday, 5 February 2012 22:50 (1 year ago) Permalink
Fizzles! Thank you, what a lovely post! Do you think you can write my "artists statements" for me when people ask for such silly things, because you put things so much more eloquently that I ever could.
Obviously Beardsley and the decadents were a huge, huge influence on me. And lots and lots of illustrations for children's books - I definitely read LeGuin as a child, and those illustrations do look very familiar, it's possible they left some imprint on me. But I think of other things - there was a lovely lavish translation of the Morte D'Arthur (Roger Lancelyn Green, I think?) which I read endlessly as a child, which had these incredible illustrations (no, not Beardsley, newer ones) which I always thought were woodcuts until I was older and read the author/illo bios and they weren't woodcuts but paper cut-outs, some of them were stark black and white and haunting, while others were vividly coloured. they were amazing, but I cannot remember the artist's name.
Ah! Google says Lotte Reiniger - which is odd, as I've recently seen one of her films! (By recently, I mean, last year.)
Doing stuff in colour is kind of a new thing for me, I've only been doing it a couple of years. Most of the artists I try to emulate are, oddly, printmakers rather than digital artists - so, StanM, I've really been trying to make the colour gradients look like hand-printed washes rather than that usual glossy digital sheen.
The people I've been most into recently have been the Penwith Printmakers who I found in St Ives - esp Lee Stevenson and Carol Lander, they use those gorgeous Cornish colour palettes really effectively.
Oh and of course Chris Wormell who did those gorgeous Adnams beer adverts "beer from the coast" that just completely struck me because he does that same thing with thick black lines, then gorgeous washes of vivid colour.
This is clearly NOT one of mine, it's Wormell, but I almost wish it was?

Hmm, maybe that wasn't the best Wormell choice, realise now it does look like litter, but it was part of a series where bits of beer bottles were disguised as bits of landscape - a beer bottle amidst a row of wintered boats leaning against a wall, that sort of thing.

Thank you! It's actually much nicer to have someone say they like my pics than to say nothing. So don't admit defeat for not being eloquent, you just made me feel rlly happy and proud! Which is a good thing to do.
The Cornish on the Mousehole Harbour one - Nadelik Lowen ha Blydhen Nowydh Da (oh god I had to check the spelling about 10 times when I did it) - it just means Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. It's like the one Cornish phrase that pretty much every Cornish person knows. It was seriously freaky - when I got down to Mousehole last year, literally I was walking to my cottage (well, not my cottage, but the one I was renting) and the first art shop I walked by had that card hanging up in the window! That was the strangest thing ever, but it felt really nice.

Also that Cornish text thing has just reminded me. I planned on entering the Gorsedh this year in the calligraphy section.

I used to work in Tiffany glass, when I was an undergrad and I had time on my hands and access to a shed with running water.

I feel really dumb now coz I didn't even know what a dope sheet was before I read that. I suppose because I'm drawing it all out rather than shooting it, I don't need to worry about camera angles and things. That sounds so complicated. Your drawings are so detailed I would love to see your animations, but I can imagine it would take forever.
I used freeware called Pencil, which I don't recommend. It's crashy as hell, it won't seem to load more than 15 seconds of animations at a time, it likes to lose layers and move things about without asking you. I ended up doing all the actual coding in TextEdit and just using it as a compiler. I then had to chuck all these 10 second blips into iMovie and add the soundtrack, and iMovie just destroys the quality - it was originally done in HD, but you can't tell that by what iMovie export. I don't think I'd do another project in Pencil, I'd like to find something more reliable. If I ever did anything again, which I'm not sure I would.
Then again, maybe I should be less ambitious and do 10 second blips that are just animations of regular drawings.

They're apparently two for a penny in the thrift stores of Cornwall.

Can I show you my favorite wacky psychedelic piece of bs I found at a thrift store? It's this embroidered flower tiger, hidden under plexiglass

But here, have a sea arch. Orkney has a sea arch pretty much every 500 yards or so.

I like your new no outlines stuff.

It's 100% digital is why no outlines. I kinda miss the thick outlines, I need to scan some of the outliney sketches I did while sitting on sea walls and stuff.

random question for people here who go to art galleries/museums and know a ton about them:
what is the formal name for the info cards that accompany photos/paintings/sculptures/whatever?
i need to find an standard or example of one for a project i'm doing, if anyone could hook up a photo i'd be very grateful.

I think they're called placards. I called up a museum once hoping they'd tell me how to make them properly but they said they just did whatever on foamcore. This was one of the MOMAs.
