Print's Hand Drawn Illustration Competition Finalists, Set #4
A Detailed Map of the Tattoos of My Upper Body by Mike Lowery (Atlanta, GA)
Materials used: Silk screen, print gocco, pencil, and digital Artist’s statement:
This self-promo mailer was created to show of my love for hand written typography. It was sent out to some as a screen printed poster and others received a little package with a tattoo-less drawing of me with clear sheets with tattoos printed on them so the client could change them out. Full disclosure: some of these tattoos are real (maybe) and some are exaggerated…slightly.
Traveling Wondercase by Brittany Brewer (Clinton, MS)
Materials used and artist’s statement: Traveling Wondercase is an upcycled Samsonite hardshell suitcase painted with acrylic paint markers and coated with a glossy finish. All new nylon straps, trim, and fabric are displayed inside the suitcase along with metal/plastic hybrid buckles. A black velvet lining wraps along the outside of the suitcase.
Seek the Tiger, Find the Jungle by Sujay Sanan (New Delhi, India)
Materials used: The drawing was made in about five days using pencils, erasers, black steadler fine liner pens (.05-.4). The drawing was scanned and colors were altered using digital media. Artist’s statement:
The illustration was created for a poster for a jungle retreat near Corbett National Park (India). Year round, thousands of visitors flock to Corbett to see the tiger, hinging their joy on a single sighting, forgetting that Corbett is home to over 580 birds, over 60 mammalian species, multitudes of reptiles & amphibians and even some of the largest fresh water fish. The idea behind the illustration was to show that there is more to the jungle than the tiger and each animal plays a part in this ecosystem that supports the life of this animal.
Montague Street Banner by Sarah Knotz (Brooklyn, NY)
Materials used: Charcoal and digital. Artist’s statement:
This piece draws on seasonal inspiration to help decorate the lampposts of a Brooklyn shopping district.
