Tapestry Cartoons...

Okay, these are some rough ideas for a series of tapestries I'd like to weave up over next winter. I want to purchase the wool for them bulk and dye the colors myself so that I have total control over all the gradations. I hinted the areas that will be done in opalescent and pearl pinks using a marker, and the rest of the images I want to weave in a cool grey scale (one that leans hard to blue). Like I said they are still rough concepts. I am already thinking of refining a couple of them, and I have several more ideas brewing as well, but I wanted to post them so that sarakat, keems and nomers could see what I have been talking about in Afrodiary.

This is the first design I drew. I had been looking at a lot of medieval tapestries and paintings...


Anyways, I would love any reactions/interpretations/feelings if anyone wants to leave a note.




I had fun with these. I am still having fun. Many many more ideas are materializing(pun intended :P). They would also lend themselves well to my pen and ink freakiness. I think I will put together an Art Zine from the ones I don't use as cartoons. Then I can have those available at the show as well.



Yes.
Don't ask. Just wonder.




And this one is loaded...



Okay sounding boards...
Gimme an earful?
Love n such,
