Great Graphix Challenge

Recently, the great peeps at Cloth Paper Scissors asked me if I wanted to participate in a project called the Great Graphix Challenge for an upcoming issue. Graphix sent us all a great package of art supplies to play with and I immediately took to one of their products right away: rub-on transfers.

At the time of this project, I was also producing a city journal for a workshop in NYC I’m teaching this fall. And, I was painting many cityscapes:

Obviously, the city was on my brain! So I turned to an image in my collection I love to use and printed it out as instructed:

I then cut it out of that film:

And tested placing it down before I actually rubbed it on to one of my journals:

I ended up using it on the cover of a Moleskine Cahier and doodled and lettered around it:

Six of the 10 artists who participated will have their results published in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors and there will be an online extra PDF with the other four, including all blog links to all of the artists!
