“Eminence Front” underdrawing, with soundtrack.

India ink, straight outta the bottle on a brush is pretty exciting. I used to find it terrifying because of how unforgiving of error it is but I’ve come to love it. As with wet media, you cannot control it completely and what appears upon application radically transforms the underdrawing. You don’t really know what you’re going to get even when you’re happy with your underdrawing (or unhappy with it). For a year now I’ve been using cheap rolls of construction paper to make my posters. It somehow seems right, it works.
