This Macaw drawing has been linked with the endangered project. Even though there not an endangered animal I though this project would be a great way to experiment with layers in my drawing and show a different more technical way of drawing. Even though there not endangered you can still adopted a Macaw on the the WWF website.
This project has been going on for quite a long time. This 8 foot by 4 foot drawing has been the centre piece to finish the spiritual animals series with the largest animal on the planet being the inspiration for the size of the piece. This mural has been a challenge I have enjoyed massively not only because of its size but this was the first public drawing I have ever done and getting so many great comments from passers by has improved my confidence massively. I also have great news in that I was lucky enough to have two news articles about my public drawing so make sure to check them out with the Lancashire Telegraph and my university newspaper at Bucks New University.
Looking into the spiritual animal of the Whale it is a holder of wisdom, keeper of history, has a great importance in family, very peaceful and is very good with there communication skill. If this sounds anything like you comment bellow.
The Blue Whale is the Largest animal on the planet and can grow up to 100 feet long. There is an estimated 10,000 to 25,000 on the planet making them on the endangered list and also threatened to be critically endangered. Blue Whales are threatened by mostly us human beings. Water pollution is making them lose there habitat but also fishing boats and there nets to catch other fish damage the whales. For more information and to maybe help the WWF visit there website to see there work and what they have been doing to help.
Murals are my favourite thing to draw. making it bigger means there is much more room for hidden links and details that make up much make than just one image. There are many hidden features like for example the flowers int the headdress and the complicated chains around the face of the lion.
Experimenting with my designs looking into using the laser cutting machine i thought the cross section of the tree trunk would work really well and even though it cracked because of the heat the design works perfect on the work pattern.
A pleasure to do this Greenday commission looking at silhouettes and patterns.
Experimenting with ways of printing my work and designs have made them look much more man made taking away any digital look to them with a raw image of the design. it also adds texture to the image as well.
This is my very first commission mixing patterns shapes making a mother wolf. With making this piece ill be turning this pen drawing into screen prints experimenting with backgrounds and handmade elements making it look much less digital and much more down to earth and rough around the edges.
