Laura G (day5&6)


Titled "To Thine Own Self", this final piece of the black scratchbord series started with flat, twisted linguine noodles. I liked the ribbon-like shape and the haphazard directions they made. The idea was to create enough contrast between the background area and the foreground (the twisted ribbons). I did this by creating almost a cheesecloth appearance with the scratched lines. Lots of movement in this one. It's the last in the series until I place another order for more panels.

These are really good Laura. I don't know how you feel about it but I think you should shop this look around for book illustrations. Very cool.
