Color and Design Pan

One of our final projects for Color and Design: a 60-inch wide, 10-inch high painting composed of two 30-by-10 strips of illustration board. I had plenty of fun with this--we were allowed to use whatever means we wished, which meant we didn't necessarily have to do fancy painting. I'm particular to washes and ink--nice, basic stuff--so that's what I went with. I didn't spend as much time as I wanted to getting all the grays nice and distinct in shade, and I forgot to do that before scanning, so some of the grays meld together. Nrrgh.

The 'pan' is of my lonely electron fellow peering out into a subatomic world populated by particles and other worlds which he is absolutely denied. He has no company.

Here's the rough sketch!

  1. Hey! I saw this on the wall today. I peaked into your class when the musicians were there. It looks great. :D

  2. This is fantastic! I absolutely love the world you have created. Please don't dismiss the idea of making a film about your world. I want to help you come up with stories and relationships, because I can see that you're constantly building bridges and patterns all over your ideas to this one world of yours.

    It's beautiful.
