🖤 EVENT ILLUSTRATION 🖤
Первая партия иллюстраций, со вчерашнего мероприятия 👉🏻
Как по мне, это классный опыт и тренировка своих способностей.
Но❗️при моей стилистике больше всего времени уходило на то, чтобы добиться «похожести» и «узнаваемости» за довольно короткий промежуток времени.
А ещё я сделала один важный для себя вывод:
В обычные дни я рисую медленно. Оказывается, могу намного быстрее ☺️🤷🏼♀️
P.S. Всегда обходила стороной рисование детей и мужчин. Зря! Даже легче и проще, чем девушек рисовать 😊
More deconstructions of pots, a rather good exercise for anyone who makes functional ceramics, of course in these simple inked lines it’s easy to create perfectly thin walls, handles and spouts and they certainly wont be like that once thrown and assembled but it gets you thinking about how clay can fit together and how you might be able to do something differently.
Drawing is something I’ve done my whole life and I don’t think I’m particularly good as it’s mostly limited to ellipses and pots. From the start of kindergarten at the Waldorf Steiner school I went to we drew, with big block colour crayons until the very end of class thirteen, some fourteen years later, with ink and pencil drawings like this.
It wasn’t optional, we had to draw. Throughout all of our classes from almost beginning to end we drew in every class or main lesson, be it maths, a language class, geometry or history. We even had dedicated classes to simply fill our designated drawing books in the earliest years. It wasn’t some artistic undertaking done only once or twice a week, rather it was almost everyday until I was twenty years old, and that’s not including art lessons.
Craft was of a similar ilk, before we started mathematics we first learnt to knit a little satchel used to store conkers we’d pick up from the gardens outside and we used those for subtraction and addition in class one. Clay was discovered even earlier, in kindergarten we would dig it out of the ground from deposits on the schools ground, we’d model lumps into rudimentary animals and figures and bake them alongside bread we’d make in the wood-fired ovens outside. Clay, craft and drawing have been in my blood for as long as I remember, so I suppose it’s sort of fitting I decided to become a ceramicist.
Graphite on Stonehenge - 28" x 36"
How did progress take priority over humankind? How did the desire for a modern way of life, that which threatens our future and that of future generations, become... a normal way of life?
We must change our unconscious disregard for nature and view the planet differently - a system; an intricate fabric that has been woven over the span of an eternity with each thread integral to the whole.
That deforestation in Peru effects the typhoons of Japan, that suburb development in Dallas causes bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef, that bottle of water...causes the starvation of the polar bear. We must make unprecedented changes because there is no Planet "B". If we continue this course of disregard it will destroy our planet and we won't survive.
This drawing illustrates how our convenient way of life affects another indirectly. The bottles can be perceived as an obstacle, a wall, a threat, and they are illustrated as they would be seen marching along a conveyor - Constant production and constant disregard for nature.
