work in progress
This is a little mash-up of details from the sketches I'm doing for Weave. I love working within boundaries. Might be that I'm perpetually a student at heart and I like assignments. The zine is black and white (until the world realizes these women are geniuses and they make a million dollars) but the work the editors liked of mine is the new digital stuff so I wanted to stick with collage. I have to keep the stuff fairly simple and high-contrast so it'll reproduce OK, and I wasn't sure how I'd do that, because my Photoshop collage/paintings rely on sort of subtle textures and colors.
So what I have ended up doing is very like my raw sketches but with some additive/subtractive work going on in the layers and some computer text added in. It has a very xeroxed-zine, cut -and-paste quality that I'm loving.
