Visual unity through the use of space and shapes formed.Movement achieved by overlapping the common line shapes and creating a rhythm in the middle of the diagonal lines. Main idea was to create a sense of order.
Cut from 2 Sq's in the size of 4" from black & grey construction paper.
The little line designs was made from punching it out with a pattern notcher. Main visual idea was overlapping curved lines. Black is the dominant value in which it first leads the eye around the design and the grey comes along later.
For my Art class this semester, my professor gave samples of Aubrey Beardsley's artwork. We were suppose to use the same technique and inspiration of his drawings to create our own.
This is my inspiration of Beardsley's work combined with fashion design. I basically just made up patterns and stuff as I went along. I first drew it in pencil and then color in the black with ink from Micro-pens (different sizes 0.30, 0.50, 0.80mm). Aubrey Beardsley's work is verrry odd, with a little whimsical here and there. If you google some of his work, you might experience some erotic stuff. However, I love his most famous works which mostly consist of Japanese woodcuts (his inspirations).
The story of my Art piece: Man dies. Mother Nature uses man's sperm to create lives (hence little embryos in ice-cream cone). Her tears are water to the fish wrap around her like a dress, in which a flower is grown to shoot little pellets of love to the little lives up from above.
Dress style is inspired from Marchesa's Spring 2011 line.
Pretty vivid right? Well, so was Aubrey Beardsley.
