Totally Plucked

It was a great honour, great fun to do the illustrations for an album or should I say a CD.. Totally Plucked. My life dream was always to be an illustrator for LP covers. I absolutely loved LP covers growing up.

 

The designer of the record was Roz Hermant, who’s also an amazing photographer and mix media artist. http://rozhermant.com  Jan- Paul Campeau producer is a  amazing musician and Andrew Hermant who is just simply brilliant.

                              

The Process

I finally finish my piece that I will be submitting into the Art School of Peterborough Auction happening on April 14 2018 . http://artschoolptbo.org/art-auction-2018/

It’s A bigger piece 16”x16”. This piece is an example of mix media ..I combined Scratchboard with acrylic media… I though it would be interesting to see the process. The piece took me about 2 weeks to complete…. Not sure what to name it yet.

 

 

 

The Beginning

Step 2

Step 3

The pig is almost done,

The animals are most done ,but the pig is looking a little dark.

Colour…. the Pig is still too dark.

The pig is looking better..Add medium to back.

Add colour and drawing for back ground.

Removed frisket to expose the drawing and maintain white of background.

change back ground not happy with the colour

Finish !!!!
