Sketches for OUTSIDER

July 13, 2018



In preparation for the drawing Outsider, traditional sketching with graphite and a few colour pencils are used to work out the composition and particularities of linear perspective. Typographic elements are worked out digitally, and shading is achieved through both traditional and digital media. I created the original “water drop” wall paper pattern to resemble wall paper design of the 1940s, and skewed it digitally to map it on to a slice of wall to be seen in perspective in the final drawing. These sketches enabled the creation of Outsider, a charcoal drawing scheduled to be exhibited in Toronto next month in the Uncommon exhibition.
