Materials: Marker and rubbing alcohol
Artist Statement: For this assignment, we had to use marker and rubbing alcohol to make a print. First, I used marker to put down colour. Then, I sprayed it with rubbing alcohol so it would be transferrable. Next, I printed it on to the paper. Once it was dry, I went in with a micron to draw in the planets and rocket, and I used a bit of chalk pastels in some areas to make the colour more vibrant.

Artist Statement: For this piece I did a self-portrait with chiaroscuro. In my reference, I positioned myself on my bed with my hand stretched towards the camera to show foreshortening. First, I traced a grid with a pencil. Then, I went in and sketched an outline lightly as a reference. After that, I went in with the charcoal and started shading in the lighter values. Once the lighter values that were darker. While shading, I took a tissue in order to blend the charcoal.
Title: Dont Blink
Media: Pencil and Marker
Artist Statement: For this sketchbook assignment I chose the prompt "don't blink". I drew weeping angels from doctor who because in show, if you blink they "get you". First, I sketched out both of the weeping angels. Then, I traced out where the "DON'T BLINK" should be. Next, I used a grey coloured pencil to colour in the angels and to add values and shadows. After that, I used a red sharpie to colour on the "DON'T BLINK". Finally, I used a black sharpie to fill the background with the quote from doctor who that refers to the weeping angels.
