Textured Text: Junk-mail Abstracts
While catching up on blog visits I came across the posts Junkmail Geometry (drawing) and Automatic Drawing over at Andy Parkinson’s blog, Patternsthatconnect . That got me thinking about my Textured Text pieces and I decided to experiment using one of my recent textures. I grabbed some Junk mail pamphlets out of the recycle box and ripped/cut them into rectangle pieces. I re-assembled a mix of pieces on the scanner bed and created several images. Working with a couple of these I then layered them with my texture. The first results can be seen here.
Andy was also working with the concept of grid patterns. I incorporated that idea using a mosaic glass effect and a fine polka-dot pattern. So thanks Andy for the inspiration, your artwork and art reviews are very interesting.
I will post more of these as I experiment further and see what kind of variations I can produce.
