Marshall Art Studio: Illustration Friday

[Back to top]

Illustration Friday


Tech Talk Photoshop, scanner, Google Image Search

Art Speak Sometimes, you don't have to draw a damn thing. This "found art" approach is a return to my art-school roots. Like most of my work of that period, I have no idea what this drawing actually means. It probably says more "coffee stain" than "buzz".

iFridaynista All new art, a direct -- if somewhat addled -- response to the assignment.

"Coffee House" is fantastic conveying so well the effect of one too many expressos. The brain is on fire while the reality of the background pales. Permanent Link

"Coffee Stain" for some reason is nostalgic reminding me of years in the 60s and 70s spent in coffee houses just kind of day dreaming or staring out at nothing or doing whatever instead of anything more demanding or responsible- mental doodling.
this is good work. bravo. Permanent Link


What the Heck is Illustration Friday?

Think of it as a voluntary, client-free playground for illustrators. A topic is posted every Friday morning. Participants from around the world create, post and share their interpretations.

No Client? Why Bother?

At this stage of my career, I need a weekly public exercise to draw anything at all.

Freshness Dating

Unless otherwise stated, my iFriday work is all-new, created soley for that week's theme. Other Freshness categories include:

  • Repurposed
    Old art, lifted straight from the archives with no current modifications
  • Refurbished
    Previously-viewed art, modified and enhanced for current times
  • Alt Theme
    Past iFriday themes, presented when I have nothing for the current week's theme
