I did this because I wanted to try out my new gouaches. I dug through pics cut out of old magazines until I found this color one – the caption reads “Town Crier Wears Carpet Slippers in Le Monastier – Antione Argaud, clinic 75 years old, blankets the main street with his oral advertisements and public notices. He prefaces each announcement with drumbeats. ‘Don’t make any picture postcards of me,’ he warned the photographer.” You KNOW he was the town loonball, the 30′s Europe equivalent of this guy, and when folks in Le Monastier checked out how their town looked to the rest of the world they that it was all about Antoine. Fuckin’ Antoine.
As you can see, I started to put in a background, but I had to go to a party, so it didn’t happen. Besides, backgrounds are boring. Also, it’s unbelievably stupid that my combo scanner needs to have ink cartridges installed to SCAN. WTF, Canon?
I think me and gouache are going to get along just fine.
