This is what the final page looks like after combining all the elements (see this post here)
from Left to Right:
- 11" x 11" Bristol board "final artwork"
- ink spattered on a sheet of drawing paper that will be cut out and pasted to bristol board -print out of composite of sketches made on several sheets of tracing paper (placed on light table in used as an inking guideline for the final artwork)
- tracing paper sketches taped together
- one more tracing paper sketch for good luck.
Though there are no words in this issue, or even recognizable figures, just deliberately placed wisps of ink that ebb and flow like flocks of birds, he deftly manipulates timing and pace with a distinct sense of musicality. The structure is one of a poetic tempo that you can feel the rhythmic beat of, while taking in his sensual inky lines.
