Talk and Draw
The above is a poem by Jules Gotay that inspired the image “The Moonbird’s Manifesto” (not pictured). During today’s talk and draw we will be using his words to inspire our own drawing based on his work (below).
Midnight. A Bird from the moon comes down, walking on the avenues of the sky. His presence awakens the colors of the world. The sleeping streets glow with neon moonlight as he passes. Carrying a pile of night-colored paper, he nails one on each dreaming house as he goes. Using the alphabet of the stars he has composed a manifesto in an indecipherable language.
By looking at Jules Gotay’s work, we can begin to get an idea of his techniques by getting closer. What do you notice?
