These memories lose their meaning
More of the sketchbook combinations. This one crashed before I could save it so all I have is this lo-res version.
This one combines two drawings: one with ballpoint pen ink (mixed with isopropanol) and one of the recent red and blue heads.
This is where the ‘darken’ layer option in Photoshop comes into its own. For combining drawings, especially when they’re drawn on the same paper, it’s perfect.
Ben Wallace, Minister of Defence
Another sketchbook piece based on a photo I take off the TV during breakfast. This time it’s Ben Wallace, minister of defence in the UK.
You can buy a dream or two
I’m living in a kind of daydream
This is the view from my sofa, lovingly rendered in ink and pencil at about 50 x 70 cm.
My floor isn’t normally this untidy, I should make this clear. I was thinking more about the composition. The man on the screen is someone else I photographed talking about war one morning.
As you wish — Cassidy Place
Single artwork for ‘As you wish’ by Cassidy Place.
With further ado
“I still don’t know if my wife is even alive.”
Lately I’ve been photographing people on the TV—mostly in the morning with my coffee—and then later drawing them in my book. This guy was fleeing the war in Ukraine.
