Post it notes and plastic metallic colour discs. Thought about a pattern that I could make, using arrow shaped post it notes I decided to place the pointed bits over the discs. Have a glue stick, water soluble, so I glued each individual piece of paper and plastic… It took two hours! By the time I’d done it (after accidentally dropping the discs and the glue stick on the floor) my fingers were covered in a sticky gluey mess. Thank goodness it’s soluble!

I like using post it notes and I saw these arrow shaped ones in the supermarket. I am going to use them in a project for my illustration course. It’s based on homelessness and I’m trying to show time going backwards to when people were safe and happy. I did see them as beach huts, but that doesn’t fit with what I’m using them for.
Every year thousands of people lose their homes for various reasons. They coukd be causing trouble. Or they might not be able to afford their rent, or have lost their jobs, been bereaved, had benefits cut or have mental health problems.
There are so many reasons for homelessness and I think it needs explanation. To many times homeless people are seen as causing their own problems instead of not always being responsible for them.
Tuesdays #bandofsketchers prompt was flower. I decided to do a collage of a flower… I was going to draw a hanging basket but they got bashed in the hail from a thunderstorm. So I decided to create something from post it notes and coloured paper. Also holographic paper and black calligraphy pen.
Transformed a drawing of a torch into a boat by covering over a lot of it with pink and green paper, bits of black monoprint and some black ink and green spray ink. Playing with obscuring the image to create something new.
Today’s band of sketchers prompt is warning… So I drew something but it was wrong the traffic lights are in the middle of the road. .. So I turned it into another cartoon. Warning! Traffic light in wrong place! A bit bonkers today I know… Made with post it notes and felt pen.
Collage and digital edit on the theme ‘feathers’ for today’s #bandofsketchers prompt. I went a bit mad, using tissue paper, post it notes, gold glitter paint and felt pens. Then I put it through my phones editor to change the contrast and hues.
