Inspirations

One of my favorite Graphic artists
Franciszka Themerson ... gifted Innovator, Illustrator. Oddly largely unrecognized today in the UK for her important influence  ( I saw a small show of her early WW2 1940s work in 1990 at the south bank - superb - and of course created within a context of estrangement and a world war ! ) 
She and her husband pioneered graphic imagery in the West and also in animation and experimental film making.

''The Themersons played a major role in the history of independent, experimental and pre-war cinema in Poland, their significance for the development of the Polish avant-garde film is enormous.
In 1948 the Themersons founded a publishing house: the Gaberbocchus Press. In 31 years they published over sixty titles, including works by Alfred Jarry, Kurt Schwitters and Bertrand Russell.

Also our friends at Camberwell College of Art's blog is worth a very good look - especially the blog images of artists like RR and Susan Hillier who use the idea of'collections'http://camberwellillustration1.blogspot.com/

Could these images below be Allotment drawings etc  ?  or drawings for your 3d worksheets ? YES they could - so please admire and GO FOR IT


work sheet drawings expectations for pin up crit ?  -  I hope to expect mapping of ideas and drawings like these by eva hesse & Georgia O Keeffe, map your plans and colour abstracts & form -  dont be too methodical yet or plan ahead too much...SO STILL EXPERIMENT
