drawings





































A small series of drawings I've just done while making little books.Reasonably happy with the drawings but the book was pretty ordinary.































Must try harder to finding other formats, covers and fasteners which work better.

I LOVE the drawings AND the book.
(perhaps eliminate the ribbons?)

The drawings are LOVELY Jack. The ink looks like it has been frozen right at the moment of bleeding into the paper. Deeeelicious :)

Jack Oudyn said...

I agree Anna, no more ribbons. Glad you like the drawings

Jack Oudyn said...

The drawings are fantastic Jack and look just perfect in that little book.

Leslie Avon Miller said...

Fabulous drawings! And wonderful mark making.

Jack Oudyn said...

Thanks Helen, with your help I hope to make the book even better next time round.

Jack Oudyn said...

Thanks Leslie, I love your mark making too and aspire to achieve your almost Japanese simplicity of composition. I tend to always put in too much and only realize this when it's too late.

That bird is killing me! So ethereal.

Jack Oudyn said...

Thanks Roberta, I didn't see a bird until I looked again at the fourth drawing. Pure coincidence though, not intentional.

Yes such beauty in your drawings - colours, shapes, details all so lovely. I look and look - so lovely.
