A fifth image here from my Memoir Project submission – Clown Noses. This is the title poem and image. I took the title fairly randomly and then created the image around it.
A third image from my Memoir Project submission. Here we see a hand written poem. For the Memoir Project I wanted to use poetry to tell a story.
Another page from my Memoir Project Submission. Clown Noses. This is one of my first attempts at concrete poetry. Just thought I’d try something new. I’m not too sure that this page is quite representative of the book as a whole or if it is even a memoir, but I think it is quite an interesting image that makes use of words and imagery.
The Memoir Project is run by the Arhouse co-op in Brooklyn New York, where they have asked 500 writers and artists to complete a 32 page booklet and turn it into a Memoir. This is from the same organisation who run The Sketchbook Project, where I created my book – ‘Fashion Design For Monsters‘. My Memoir is called ‘Clown Noses’ and is a series of poems and pictures, making use of concrete poetry and imagery to act as a Memoir. The Book will go on tour in various cities in North America. More on this later, but below is an image from my book. I won’t be posting up all the pages, just a selection.
The Sketchbook Project asks artists of all levels to complete a small book with ideas, drawings and sketches. I recently completed my sketchbook and below a preview page can be seen. My book is called ‘Fashion Design For Monsters’. I’ve posted up several pages from this and here is another one. A quick photo taken of one of the pages.
Another image from the Sketchbook project.
This is a just a photo of the page. Part of the Sketchbook was a comic and this is a single page in a longer story.
Another Preview Page from Fashion Design for Monsters.
I am also currently doing another project for the Art House Co-op, but more on this later.
Recently I completed a new art project called ‘The Sketch Book Project’. I basically had to complete a sketchbook in the space of a few months for an the Arthouse Co-Op in New York City. I decided to create a comic book that told a few different stories in a few different styles. I will be posting several images from the book in the next few weeks. The sketchbook is also going to tour around North America. I will post more on this later. My book is called ‘Fashion Design For Monsters’.
The first image is below.
