Pencil and Ballpoint Pen
Inspired by lyrics of songs, which have an interesting hidden meaning behind them.

|Constructed using an oval canvas, a template mask and mod rock.|
Nail varnish was used on the lips to achieve a glossy shine and fake eye lashes were glued above the eyes.
Notes of monopoly money were used to collage the head and canvas.I glued ‘hotels and houses’ from the game on the top of the head.
Juan Casas is an artist who has proven that ballpoint pen can be used to produce respectable works of art. Inspired by Casas, I have produced some ball pen images of Ian Curtis and Kate Bush.
I selected these musicians because they both have an undoubtedly unique style and have established themselves as revolutionary music icons.
These images developed from the central iconic photograph. I added newspaper clippings associated with the life events of Marilyn Monroe to contextualise the final photograph. My original photo can be seen along with the edited images.
