About two years ago, I was curious to see what filters people were using with their photos on Instagram etc would look like applied to drawings. I made my own custom filters in Photoshop and experimented with a set of ‘Superhero’ cartoons I was making at the time.
Above is a compilation of recent drawings the way I post them on Instagram, playing around with those filters.
Pictured above is a 'Superhero' drawing from two years ago, as posted on Instagram at the time.
My current drawings all appear in the Drawing a Day blog in their ‘standard’ (unaltered) format. I am fascinated by inverted images - the 'X-ray' look. I love what happens to ink spot spatters, they look like light spots or bubbles.
I like to imagine them as stills from a scratchy old film; but it’s my ambition to make them into a suite of photogravure etchings. One day!
This is today's Drawing a Day, No. 53 as posted on Instagram.
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
