Begin by creating 10 incidental line drawings on 18x24 drawing paper
Let the action describe the line Attach the paper to physical body or have the paper in a place where line is captured by bodily actions.
You MUST use achromatic media (this means without hue: black and white)
Use your mouth Draw with your feet Use an inanimate object GET CREATIVE with how you do this!!! The actions you can do are practically limitless to create fabulous marks Do at least 8 different actions to create your 10 drawings..
Do not hold the medium in your hand like a pencil. Grasp it where you can hold your wrist and hand still. Allow the movement of your body or vehicle to create the line. Do not force the line to happen let the movement of your body move the drawing instrument not your hand. You are recording movement.
After you have completed your 10 drawings, pick your best 5 and crop to make interesting compositions.
Your pictures cropped will be 7x10
Example: place your sketchbook in your lap as you ride the bus or metro link. Do not hold the writing instrument like a pencil! Watch lines form as your body sways with the curves of the road and the bumps of the asphalt.
Look at the whole picture plane
Great art comes from the artist making a series of great choices
Made by: 1.) Tying a pen to the fridge door and swinging it back and forth 2.) Bouncing a cat toy dipped in ink on the paper 3.) Dangling a piece of yarn over the paper 4.) Dipping yarn into ink and smacking the paper with it 5.) Dipping feathers into ink, tying them on a string, and bouncing them around on the paper 6.) Tying a pen to a string and having a cat play with it 7.) Tying an ink blotter to a string and smacking the paper with it 8.) Tying a pen to my arm and playing guitar for thirty minutes 9.) Smacking a cat toy dipped in ink against the paper
