Gel Medium

4

Here are some experimental pages in my journal that I’ve been working on since yesterday. I’m not quite done with the blue spread!

I had some extra of the iridescent medium/black acrylic combo I used on the cover of my world atlas journal, so I gooped it on a page in one of my other art journals. I made all the lopsided stars with various gel pens.

Of course, then I needed a quote about stars. :)

And all we are is burning stars
Shining brightly - making sure you don’t float too far
I’ll keep an eye on you
If you keep one on me
And then what happens we’ll see
And then what happens we’ll see
-Mimicking Birds, “Burning Stars”

So I decided to give my banjo a makeover. I figured if I was going to change the strings, I might as well go ahead and change damn near everything. I used gel medium to do an ink transfer of a creepy ass comic called Nightmare The Rat. Now, whenever Atoka Chase plays live, people will hopefully pay less attention to me stumbling around on stage because they’ll be so mesmerized by the banjo.

p.s. Ellie is the cutest pup who likes to interrupt late-night photo shoots…
