Scribble Sunday #31
I finally got round to watching ‘Beats, Rhymes and Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest’ all the way through. One of my favourite parts of the film was the opening credits, everyone needs to watch them! This was inspired by the credits and film in general. I was gonna do it on paper but found an old bit of shelf and thought ‘why not?’ lol
I much prefer her earlier work (circa 2007) to the newer stuff. There’s something a bit disturbing about the solitary children with vacant eyes and withered hands. I particularly love the more detailed floral back drops on the first two images but unfortunately I don’t think that’s her preferred style.
Scott Radke’s handmade marionette dolls kinda remind me of a slightly more twisted Tim Burton though apparently they’re not meant to translate as ‘dark’ or ‘goth’ art. Either way there’s something really beautiful and melancholy about them.
I love this guy’s painting/drawing style and he makes prints as well (which aren’t screen prints!!!). The first image is a combination of woodblock and intaglio, major props for mixing those 2 processes successfully!
Those of you that know me well know that I have a penchant for big, tacky and cheap gold earrings. It’s been a while since I bought a new pair but suddenly this month I’ve gone crazy for them again! Here are 3 of my favourite pairs :)
