Abundant Art Virtual Show: sketches!

I’ve been posting a few WiP* sketches over on my at account: Sil_artscribe, on Instagram and Facebook (I use my usual twitter account for my art as well, no changes there).

Mixed media collage (Heart Words); Fantasy pen/watercolour sketch (can you guess the inspiration for it?); Tarot Card study, from concept to colour tests.

Here they are:

“Brave New Words: a celebration of words and science

For millennia, the sciences have fired the imagination. We react to the world around us with awe and curiosity. In order to understand and experience it, we tell ourselves stories. Some of these stories we describe as fiction and some as non-fiction. But all stories, just like all science, can teach.

These stories, once spread as myths and folklore, now come in the form of prose, comics, blogs and poems. But questions arise about how best to communicate science. How accurate must writers of fiction be? Can non-fiction authors be inventive or poetic? What forms are most effective at imparting knowledge and which are best at gripping the imagination?”
