Pastel Moon Drawing

pastel moon drawing art print society6

Hi guys! I’m back with another (sorta) new design this week.

I recently gave new life to an old drawing of the moon I did a few years back, by playing around with it a little bit in Photoshop and giving it some colour!

The original drawing was done in pencil and black conté on paper, which was then photographed for digital manipulation.

I decided to use a palette of pastel colours which I have been using with several of my latest designs. (see Pastel Mandala Pattern, Pastel Elephant Pattern, etc).

I am happy with how it turned out, and I think it looks pretty cool on some of the items in my Society6 store!

What do you guys think of this re-done piece?  Do you think there are any problems with re-using an old drawing or art piece?  Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Also make sure you follow my blog if you want to see more of my designs and projects in the future!

New Space Inspired Digital Artwork

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It’s a long one here for Victoria Day, woo hoo!!

This is a new galaxy-inspired digital piece I made recently and added to my Society6 store!

I’ve been playing around with this online image editing tool called Pixlr.
It’s not nearly as powerful as Photoshop but it is free and accessible on phones and tablets which is how I made this piece!

Here is another galaxy and planet inspired piece I made using the same program, on my tablet:

These images don’t look to shabby on some of the products either:

Jupiter Drawing in Pencil and Conte

This is a drawing of Jupiter which I made for my print class.

I did not wind up making this one into a lithographic print, however I thought it turned out nice enough to share.

This drawing was done in pencil and black conte on paper, 24″ x 36″.

I’m quite enjoying creating these space themed pieces.  Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

The Moon Drawing and Lithographic Print

The Moon – pencil and conte on paper. 14 x 21″

Hey guys!

This is my drawing of the moon I did for my printmaking class which was later used to create a lithographic print (seen below).

This piece is 14 x 21 inches drawn in pencil and black conte.

Here is the lithographic print of the moon drawing.

First I re-did the drawing on dry-brush Mylar which is a see-through, plastic like surface, then exposed it onto a lithograph plate as seen below.  Then I printed it on white drawing paper as seen in the print above, and also in an edition of 3 on Sommerset paper to hand in for my class.

I think it turned out nicely!  On Sommerset they were a bit lighter, apparently I didn’t quite ink them enough but man is it a lot of work!

Also some exciting news…  my drawing was exhibited at the UBC Irving K. Barber Learning Centre as part of an exhibit held by the Carl Sagan Association!   It was interdisciplinary exhibit and my work was shown alongside tools and artifacts from Astronomy and other departments.

The exhibit is called An Inescapable Perspective and combines art and science faculties, bringing them into discussion with one another.  It’s a great thing to be a part of!

Thanks for checking out my work everyone, have a great day.

Cheers,

Julie
