MM2.ii: Pick Up Lines

This print takes the idea of a horizon line and the traditional stripe pattern and reinterprets it with hand-drawn horizontal lines.

Lines, lines, lines

A tattoo apprentice once told me that drawing straight lines and connecting them to one another was part of his learning curriculum. I adopted the same idea in creating stripes, attempting to create them with different mediums- watercolour, markers of different thickness. I wanted to see if I could create one continuous line, much like how the horizon line runs through the world.

Colours & thickness

Tests with colours, thickness of lines and spacing between lines were important to make sure the stripes were flattering on all bodies.
