Magazine Experiment

Hi all. Lawrence Yang here. I'm a San Francisco based artist (my online portfolio is here.)

So I was given the Cocoon poster to work on:

Should be fun, but the movie poster is made of this kind of reflective paper that I've never painted on before. We only get one shot at this, so decided to practice on the closest thing I could fine -- magazine paper. In this case, an old art catalog for Dick Blick.

"Magazine Experiment" - 5" x 5"" - ink, watercolor and gouache on magazine paper

Worked pretty well, I guess. The paper sort of repelled my attempts to paint a wash on it, but it took the india ink and gouache okay.

The paper got all wrinkled though. I'll have to try mounting some magazine paper and experiment some more. I have a few weeks, so there's time!

I hope. . . =P

Anyone else started working on their posters yet?
