Grid Influenced Work

The Grid had to start somewhere so, where else than with as single square created form criss crossed linesSKMBT_C28017041810151


I then  used my previous subject while duplicating the basic shape on top of it.

SKMBT_C28017041810160I Then decided to leave behind my previous theme and focus on the grid aspect starting basic

SKMBT_C28017041810391I then created this grid and saw some cool shapes within and wanted to highlight them


I tried to do a similar thing with this grid. I experimented with a different filling tool(the shading lines) which I then use for all my works to come.

SKMBT_C28017041810390I then simplified the grid as it may be too busy and highlighted this new method of filling a shape which looks really good as the lines variation and smudging creates unusual lines and shapes.


This image was an experiment to see how I could apply this technique to other situations and shapes. It was a Success because it introduced me to the smudging lines with a very watered down paint, which I use later on.










This is another experiment solely working on the smudging of line shapes and the different more unusual effect I could attain using the line blocking technique. The composition of this piece is unusual and was mostly up to my sub-concious.



-This drawing is combination of the original grid work and the line technique I have been developing. The design is very centralised, as the lines move out wards from the box they start to split/scatter and fall down wards. The poke-a-dots within the square aid in focusing the centre of the image.


This was another use of the idea of lines breaking off one another  as well as the smudging technique. The composition is very heavily top right orientated and then moves across the top and left edge.


-The next set of six images have the same composition as each other they use a triangular composition going from left to right as the pylons gets smaller it creates the effect of distance and depth with minimal context, this diminishes through out the pieces.


-The bold darkness of this drawing  catches your eye. Other wise it has nothing else going for it.

SKMBT_C28017041810070-The next two images uses the line technique to make it more interesting. If I was going to repeat this image I would have tried to smudge the ink with the watery black paint in the central pylon.

SKMBT_C28017041810101In this image I managed to duplicate the line pattern from the swirling piece before, its very effective and smudging occurs within the central pylon, which was the goal.

SKMBT_C28017041810100-The next two images takes advantage of the compositional effect of leading lines as it takes your eye left to right along the line clusters.












This Image uses the leading lines effect as stated above. It also uses the contrast of the black on white lines to draw your eye to the darker line cluster.

SKMBT_C28017041310270-This image uses a centralised bottom heavy composition and looks like all the lines flake off the original or that all the lines are coming together to create one, that can be left up for interpretation .







Created Drawings

These images were the two best image created from my collections. I like the the first image (Sonic Screw drivers) because it looks like someone has broken it and tried to put it back together. The overlapping  pieces of screw driver created a blurred effect almost like your seeing double or through kaleidoscope.

The second Image is reminiscent of a Russian stacking dolls as well as nodding to the function of this device in Doctor Who as it Original could change shape and size to hide. Using different images of the same object allows the image to look more interesting instead of very uniform if i had used the same image with the same angles.


Random Sequenced Images

Here I have put half of the images from each collections into a random order to see if that changes the coherence or meaning behind these.

A connection that is very obvious is that all these images are of toys/collectables as well as being Science fiction based. Because there toys and would be marketed to to children they are relativity colourful. This set best fits the category (C) has a thematic/conceptual coherence. But could also very easily be (A) has a material or visual coherence (theme) as it is all sci-fi related.

(A) has a material or visual coherence (theme)

(B) has a relationship to site / location

(C) has a thematic/conceptual coherence

Additive and Subtractive Drawings

In the first image I added more tardis’s , a very small one in the middle and a large one on the outside. I also off set  each tardis slightly giving it a swirling effect of or black-hole/ wormhole which is very much apart of doctor who. The second Image I cut the brightest part of the original image out and put a large black circle behind it. This image also ties into the black-hole theme from the other image. I feel that it is a black-hole sucking out all the light leaving only the darkness.


The first image is a messy silhouette of multiple tardis’s within one another.This style is similar to what I do later. The contrast between the hard white silhouette and rough pencil. The second image is a deconstruction of the tardis. My goal was to move away from the tardis as there is only so much you can do with a pop culture icon. However  the lines created contributed to later designs.
