Two fabric sheep illustrations hot off the table and placed on an old collage for photos…
The cloud-like sheep: (On the right). Shape of body printed from piece of fab foam in ink on rough heavy calico that had been prepared with household emulsion. Face and details added with more emulsion, pencil crayon and Muji marker.
The round frizzy sheep: (On the left). Rough outline painted on to prepared calico (see above) using watered down ink. Face area painted in emulsion. ‘Frizz’ created by printing letter m, number 3 and sign ? with Staz On ink. Face and detail as above. We watched episodes of Noggin the Nog on the storytelling course last week and I’m sure Peter Firmin’s style of illustration has temporaily seeped into my brain… don’t know where else these sheep have come from! : )
Ears: Ani DiFranco… crazy stuff!
