I am continuing to do drawings based on the outlines of collected shards of trash and assembleing them into pictures. I collect lots of pieces of scrap machinery parts and such with the intent to assemble them into objects. Doing these drawings is a new and exciting means of dealing with them. Go over to have a look at the latest ones in my Whiz Bang Gallery. Enjoy!
On my walk to work at the mill each morning I find a lot of street trash and interesting things in junk bins. The objects get picked up and saved for sculptures. What I have been doing lately is laying them on my sketch pad and drawing around the objects with my pen. This eliminates a lot of detail and makes for unusual shapes. I will combine a few objects to arrive at more interesting forms. I then fill in the shapes as I like and computerize them. The Whiz Bang Gallery has 7 of these new images. Go on over and take a peek.
