Every Saturday night
With my suit buttoned tight and my suedes on
I’m gettin’ my kicks
Watchin’ arty French flicks with my shades on
Last year I posted an ink sketch from a Skillshare project I was working on, to design a ‘band poster’. I chose to represent jazz artist Blossom Dearie. This is as far as I got with it – it was fun to play around with manipulating my ink sketches and marks in Photoshop. The piano keys were ink smeared on with a coffee stirring stick.
The class was ‘Posters with Le Doux‘, and is a good one for learning about how to create images suitable for screen printing.
To my knowledge, Blossom never had pink hair; which seems rather a missed opportunity. But she did sing this delightfully wry song.
