Moleskine Monday 9: Manic Memento Mori Double Header!
This week's installment of Moleskine Monday is a frenetic and acidic reminder of our own mortality.
Sometimes the subject matter for a drawing takes a back seat. In this case I wanted to play with my Copic markers to see if I could replicate an aesthetic similar to silkscreen and the skull was simply an occasion to do that. I'm not sure this was a complete success but it was fun to play around and I think there are some interesting moments here. Sometimes that's all you get.
As a fun side note, the bleeding inks on the Copic markers give me an opportunity to play with the sketch on the reverse side. In this case I added some red veins to bleed through the front and some opaque white to give it the googly eyes. You can see the reverse image on the right.
Come back next week for more Moleskine Monday action! You catch up on the other Moleksine Monday's here.
