Assignment One – Mark Making and Line

Oh man, it’s taken me FOREVER to finally sit down, photograph my submissions and post them. Not exactly expeditious on my part (so embarrassing) but I’m often reminded that forward motion is still motion. So after many months of not actually doing any work (avoiding it, actually), I am now at the point where I’m ready to submit my first works for review by my tutor, Neil Musson.

The below drawings are the result of exploring mark making and line studies from Part One of the Foundations Textiles course at OCA. I’m deeply apprehensive of letting anyone see this work because from my point of view, the work is dull and not all that great. I’m hopeful that my tutor will look upon my submissions with more objectivity and maybe even a kinder narrative. Stay tuned.
