visual review of The Other Boleyn Girl

digital collage, mixed media

This is a collage I've been working on for a while, finished it a couple weeks ago but hadn't gotten around to putting it up yet. It's my response to the movie The Other Boleyn Girl. Very good movie, I didn't know quite what to expect when I went to see it, and was pleasantly surprised and disturbed at the same time. A dark and twisting, backstabbing story. The hand in the collage represents Anne Boleyn, and the cards in the background are the result of her relentless pursuit of the throne.

same ink splat, except this drawing is done by my sister.

I always find it interesting how people get the same school project, or in this case, same ink splat, and see or interpret it totally differently.

ink splats


These drawings are from last Sunday, I had some fun with ink splats. Made these by just putting some ink down on a page ( a good size blob) and then blasting it with air from a compressed air can, to make interesting marks on the page. Then I took a look at the resulting ink splat and created a drawing from it. Pretty fun, actually. Nice and spontaneous stuff.

got the idea from this dude.

ink, ink wash

don't really like how this one turned out. I think I should have left it black and white.
