Kaja Avberšek, an illustrator

Kaja Avberšek, an illustrator

Month ago I’ve made this portrait, but haven’t published it on my blog. Kaja Avberšek is an illustrator, so I suggested her that I’ll make a wet plate and then she’ll draw on it. Unfortunately I was doing small 4×5″ plates, on the field, so she didn’t draw directly on the plate, but did it on her computer. This is the result. It was published in Mladina weekly and I love how it turned out. Sometimes the publication is an icing on a cake and many times it’s just the opposite, but this time it’s definitely presenting my picture in the best way. Is it a bird? Is it Superman? Or is it topshit?

OK, I’m introducing a new rubric on my blog. It’s a quizzzzzz!!! I’ll be publishing my mistakes I have done with a question what is the cause of the mistake and few days later I’ll publish the answer. Of course if you will not guess it first. Let’s start with an easy one. Here are two plates. Problematic plate has some lines in blacks and in the right bottom corner even collodion lifted off. The other plate has perfect blacks, no peeling problems. What was the cause of those lines on the crappy plate?

  1. Pozdravljen g. Peterlin. Je vzrok črt morda umazana plošča? Drugače pa čestitke za vaše delo, z velikim zanimanjem spremljam vaše strani. Edino malo pogrešam dvojezičnost, ki je kar nekam izginila z vašega bloga.

    S spoštovanjem

    P.S. In nagrada za pravilni odgovor je ??? :)

  2. Ja, tako je. Ploščo nisem dobro očistil, prav imate. Tudi sam bi rad, da bi bil blog dvojezičen, a še za to mi zmanjkuje časa, tako je to edina rešitev v teh okvirih, v katerih delam. Nagrada je, khm, blog :-)
    Hvala za komentar!

    PS: Sedaj ne vem ali bi prevedel odgovor ali ne :-)
