EDiM16 was a bittuva disaster. I had to draw a local shop. After I hopped off the bus from the city I was taking photos with my phone (Android – 11 months old) and it died. I came home and went to Google Street View and managed to get this image from there.It was what I’d been photographing anyway. It’s a typical Newtown view and it is the 7-11 near the bus stop.
I used orange ink with a dip pen (materiality) then a little red ink and green ink to get those 7-11 colours. As I was rubbing out some pencil guidelines, somehow a drop of green ink had got onto the table and onto my hand and what you see is what you get. Julia says it’s a green flash. Maybe I should spatter a bit more.
My phone is fixed now but I had to remember how to work the old one for a while.
