31 Days of Scribbles Part 2

The photo below was taken on Friday and shows all of the scribbles piled together that were created to date by that afternoon. It’s the most satisfying part of working on a daily project – seeing the accumulation of finished pieces in a short amount of time.

I managed to use up one of the handmade pieces of paper I bought last month in Seattle, which was my favourite screen printed with multicoloured polka dots. I must track down more of this paper at some point!

I’ve been trying to explore different line shapes and forms as I go. I want the pieces to seem similar but not the same. Sometimes I sketch out an idea first and other times I start directly on the paper I intend to cut. Swirly looping lines seem to be easier to make work as a paper cut than jagged lines.

This week I want to lay out what I’ve created so far for this series, and think more seriously about their potential as an installation. I’m just over the halfway point now so I feel there is enough work to get a sense of the larger series.
