I will be updating my In Situ album on Flickr with more photographs soon, so check it out next week!
Here's an illustrated page from a project I've been working on (writing and drawing) for a few years now and hope to finish in a few more years. It's about the human heart in the emotional sense but uses an anatomical heart in unexpected ways. I'm venturing into very new territory for me (my favourite thing to do apparently), and learning a lot along the way. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy this little peek.
Under Pressure (left middle) and Turbulence (top centre) | Turbulence is made up of 5 custom wood panels made to display the image at an angle since it was being mounted on the mezzanine balcony but viewed from below. Designing the panels so they could break down but be assembled to form a single unit and considering how to hang them securely from the balcony (can't have these falling on people's heads!) were the main details that took some thought and recruiting the expertise of the Phil, who was in charge of fabricating the panels. I didn't even know if I would have help installing them but thankfully I did!
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
