Daily Art: Cut-Outs

February 21st:

This is the sketch on page 28 of my Cut-Up Sketchbook. On February 21st I just did a bit of x-acto knife work on the page cutting out the portholes that had no yellow in them. The portholes with the yellow were already cut out back when I cut out the portholes on page 27.

Daily Art: Birds and a Crab

February 19th:

I drew a couple more characters peering from the ovals on page 25.

A bit of background here: The ovals on this page are traced from the cut-outs on page 26. There's a previously existing sketch on pages 27-28 that I already have a plan for, so I cut out the spaces that I wanted removed from page 27 (and consequently page 26, since it and 27 are the front and back sides of a single page) awhile back to ensure that my work on pages 24, 25, and 26 would support my plans for the 27-28 spread rather than conflicting with them.

Daily Art: Eyes

February 18th:

I started some real work on page 25. The Valentine's Day hearts were just something that I drew on the page because I wanted someplace to draw hearts and they seemed to work with the Phoenix cut-out. These illustrations were more premeditated.
