I started this last winter, before my crazy class schedule began. This isn’t really finished yet. I had bigger plans (more dead guys, for one thing) but I want to start the next one, and I’ve decided to let this be an introduction to what I’m doing in my barn.
Below is a study I did last night, before I finished making the dead Daddy-O’s. I decided to make Frida be black and white like the citizens of her town. I like how this picture turned out.
I have always loved paper-mâché, and I rediscovered while helping my daughter with a school project. I got the idea for this from a drawing I did in someone’s sketchbook for the sketchbook swap:
I am interested in seeing what happens when I try and make real world models of my drawings. When I was a kid I mixed flour and water (and maybe glue). Now, I’m using glue and water and the Baltimore City Paper.
More to come – there’s a lot going on in the Land of the Dead.
