Canvases

As I haven’t actually posted any of my work so far, I thought I’d post some pictures of some of my canvases. These are all from a few years ago, I’ve been focusing on my graphic design work for awhile, but I’m finally getting back to doing canvas pieces. I also got a pack of On The Run paint markers for Christmas, so I’ve been looking for places to use them. These pieces were done with a combination of aerosol, acrylic,¬†and paint markers, and most of them are pretty small. The series with single letters was meant to be part of an entire alphabet. If I can find the same canvases again I will probably complete it at some point. Unfortunately, some of them were damaged a little while I was transporting them. I will probably be posting more as I unpack my stuff from New York, and as I complete more pieces.

An illustration Bantjes did for a piece in Wired Magazine.

Marian Bantjes does these amazing lettering pieces and illustrations. She uses a wide variety of media in her work (even creating letters out of sugar). Her beautifully elaborate scripts and ornamented letters remind me, if not in style at least in concept, of graffiti pieces. See more on her website: http://www.bantjes.com/
