***I am super pleased to announce a new weekly feature here on ML4U; Process/Inspiration. I have asked artists to take a post and do whatever they would like with it, just as long as they represent their process or inspiration in some way. Our first artist is John Casey, an artist and a friend I have covered quite a bit on the blog. I hope you dig this first installment of Process/Inspiration from John, it's super thorough and a great peek into his process. Thanks John! p.s. I've left the comment section open if you want to chat with John, fun right? - meighan***
Hi folks. Meighan has asked me to share some of my process with you, the readers of this fine blog. I decided to show you the steps I took to create a large wood cutout version of a recent drawing of mine for a show I have at POVevolving Gallery on L.A.'s Chinatown district.
In my studio in the Marin Headlands, I first bust out my trusty Artograph projector to trace off the shapes of the image. I had to figure out the best way to divide up the large character since this big feller would need to break down to travel in my car to L.A.
I'm pretty handy with ye ol' jigsaw.
