Drawing for French Commission Collage
My friend, Mat (frenchpulp.com), lives in Lille, France, and commissioned me to create a piece on a blank skateboard deck. So I did this drawing on a large piece of sketch paper. It's, I suppose, my imagined fantasy of a French girl. She's smoking, of course.
Anyway, I'm gonna tear this up, then collage it down onto the deck. Afterwards, I'll paint into it a bit, but keep her portion of the skateboard mostly black & white. Her part of the image is very urban while, on the remainder of the deck, I've drawn a tropical scene of palm trees and rolling mountains. That's where I'll use the bulk of my color and painting chops.
Look for more pics as the piece comes along, ya'll.
