One second...

For the Love of Lids....

I have been invited to be a part of the a Harley Davidson exhibition here in Sydney, opening at the end of November. Each artists has been asked to 'art up' a helmet. I struggled to come up with a concept and style for this, but have decided to do a series of comic book style panels all over (which I had to mask off, sand off the varnish and paint, and spray matt grey.). Limited colour, and heavily inspired by Sin City and Film Noir.


Below are some pics of my work in progress. I'll post more when I have more to show. Wish me luck. :)

I am using black acrylic POSCA's. A fine line and a brush pen. Never used them before. They are taking to the matt grey spray paint well, but I will need to seal the 'panels' some how. Probably with a mat finish spray varnish.

Here's the last I can post until the exhibit, sorry troops. Colouring was an unexpected trial. The colour was a little off what I had wanted, and applied terribly. Still looks ok. Not in the two pics below I went back into the black detail some, notibly the womans eyes, and the eye of the guy above her.

More after the 20th, i promise.
