bodice created by Frances Geesin made of electroplated polypropylene fibre.
I just discovered her work and I am so completely intrigued. Electroplating isn’t actually that difficult, (http://web.media.mit.edu/~plusea/?p=554), I desperately want to know how this was done, and AHHH I need to finish my really not nearly this interesting at all work so I can do it!
quick oil sketch to de-stress (distress? I’m extremely distressed) from our lovely soul sucking exam week. Just finished listening to Neil Gaiman reading the Graveyard Book almost in the flesh on the internet (check it out if you haven’t already) He’s got a perfect story-telling sort of voice. I really liked the idea of The Lady on the Grey from the telling and ended up with this. Now only to make it slightly greyer and put in some sort of extravagant gown once the paint firms up a bit. I’m feeling slightly partial to McQueen.
