After completing the exercises on mark making I felt compelled to keep doodling. I used different shapes to doodle up theses squares. Creating what I think of as Aztec style patters.
Drawing round the felt tip marks in fine liner gives a more finished look to these fun doodles.
This enjoyable exercise has made me think I might like to take illustration for a future level 4 module. I had decided on painting and print making for the next two courses. I still want to stick with these but maybe illustration as well?
Alternatively I could find the time to make some more illustration based pieces in sketch books. I’m attracted to illustration for its commercial possibilities.
Patters for example can be turned in to textile or crookery prints.
Illustrations and patters are widely used for graphic t-shirts.
I defiantly want to develop some of my work in to a saleable item. Print on shirts or cups or plates, ipad covers, phone covers, pendents for jewellery, ect. I could set up an e-com site to start marketing the products what ever they may be. Who knows where this may lead. Exciting prospect?
The moral of the story, what ever level your at keep doodling because ideas can be born from this. I intend to.
