Here is a small selection from the work I have done so far.
My own theme was Classical Mechanics, which is about macroscopic movement and physical forces. The book I was given was A Child's A-Z of Technology, whose slippery A4 pages were difficult to work with; I ended up obliterating much of the content with acrylic gesso, although there were a few entries that seemed apt enough to retain:
|Clocks and Cogs: original content, graphite pencil, Molotow marker and watch parts.|
|Oceanic force - natural mechanics: oil pastel|
|Hands: fountain pen and Molotow marker|
Next up was the Unexpected in a Private Eye (satirical magazine) annual. I bucked the trend towards abstract with something that nobody ever expects...
|Spanish Inquisition (Monty Python): various inks|
Extrapolation into the near future in silhouette: Various inks
