Mark Making Tool
For the first week of class we were asked to create our mark making tool.
I was quite confused. What is a mark making tool?
I started collecting random stuff from the kitchen. Mushrooms, broccoli, a fruit net, dried prunes, chilli and some vegetables. (HAHA)
I dipped them in Chinese ink and started stamping Read more →

The pain of expectation of vs reality strikes closer to our hearts as visual artists.
Fail #1: Every detail is important
So I came across this very cool thing online, and it was done by Charlotte X.C Sullivan. It is called bubble printing.
Being a #Gobigorgohome kind of gurl, I decided to give it a try.
Here is a video of me doing it:

Decalcomania and my artist reference, Max Ernst

Decalcomania comes from the French word dècalcomanie. Which derives from the French word decalquer, which means to transfer or copy.
It is highly used by surrealists artists that use the technique to achieve different patterns solely due to the process of chance. It is first created by putting ink or paint on a surface such as paper, and then another paper is placed Read more →
Process: Deriving emotions from mono prints and hand drawings
Amelia YulianaMonday, Sep 05, 2016 - 12:12:58 am
Olla! Here is an update on how I have managed to derived a few of my lines from a combination of trial and errors which includes mono printing, decalcomania (my own method) and also some hand drawn ones as well!

My line is emo: The power of scanners
Viena LeeSunday, Sep 04, 2016 - 10:40:33 pm
The best part of this project that that we are able to explore different techniques and methods.
It all started with this. a line of long folded triangles pasted together. Initially, I wanted to make it as a form of 3D texture art. However, I was not convinced with this end result.
So I consulted Ms Ina who suggested me to scan Read more →
My line is emo: Monoprints
Viena LeeSunday, Sep 04, 2016 - 09:47:16 pm
To kickstart our project, we were told to try out monoprints. Monoprinting is pressing an inked plate onto a variety of inks, tools, and items to create different types of prints. The beauty of monoprint is that one can achieve a huge variety of prints by experimenting with different methods, and that no print will ever look similar.
Here is a video example Read more →

Ed Moses focuses on the profound possibilities and challenges of abstract paintings. His personality makes him choose the unknown over the known, thus his works are experimental. Most of his works are repetitive, all-over patterns of non-cursive and vertical strokes.
Resin Paintings & Paper Pieces were structures of diagonal parallel lines that zigzagged from left to right. Achieving a balance between Read more →
Project 1: My Line is Emo
DanielleFriday, Sep 02, 2016 - 11:48:57 pm
Hello! For this project, I’ve tried a few techniques. The first one would be monoprinting which contributed significantly in creating the lines. They were produced digitally after scanning the prints.
After scanning the prints, they look like these! The trashbag seen above made the print shown in the picture below (on the top right corner).
other prints are created by taping scotch Read more →
