This week’s topic for Illustration Friday is black and white, which if you’ve ever seen my artwork before you’ll know is waaaaaaaay outside of my wheelhouse. I love colours. I love playing with colour, painting with colour, mixing colours, blending colours and using lighting effects that make the colours in my illustrations pop and explode off the page. Colours are a mask in my work, they hide the details, or lack thereof, and when they’re used properly make a picture come to life. So, about black and white. I knew that I wanted to explore texture and patterns, and I immediately thought of Picasso and M.C. Escher. What I came up with is an homage to both, Picasso as the subject and Escher as the lender of theme and style.
