A Sketchbook Page with SuzieQ
I write with fountain pens every day and this is what a typical page of my gestural writing looks like. Anything goes. I tape words from other pages, add tissue overlays that I write on and continue to look for flow of the letters or an interesting way to loop and connect. With all the random words and letters I find nifty little visuals to create.
For this piece, I cut Rolling Stone off the page, taped it over SuzieQ and wrote "is a" on another tissue overlay. The small tissue was scanned and I did a quick redraw in Illustrator trying to maintain the loose quality of the original fountain pen writing.
