ink drawings: size and scale

An exercise in looking at size and scale - an old, battered Converse hi-top the subject matter.

  • Black fine liner on cigarette paper
  • Some enlarged with a projector, re-drawn using dip pens, Indian ink
  • Various freehand black ink drawings on various sizes of newspaper. Rotring ink soaked in to the surface producing a grey halo; Indian ink lines widened as they soaked in, but stayed true black.
What I hadn't considered is how random text on the newspaper influenced how the drawing might be 'read'.
