Ink on a page

Now ink has been on book pages for centuries.  Can you find the date of the first book?  Do you even know what that book was?

Well an Australian artist by the name of Loui Jover has started putting ink on pages in a new way.  He is almost using ink like watercolor paint and creating pictures over the top of recycled book pages.  You can still see the book pages under the artwork.


What do you think of these pieces?  What parts do you like or what parts do you wish would be changed?  Are there any details that stick out for you?

  1. This seems pretty cool but seems like it would be hard and messy. It would be hard to keep the paint/ink from spreading or bleeding into different places where it's not suppose to be.

  2. i think this would be fun but it would be messy. Also i think that it would be hard to do this so people know what you are trying to draw because it would bleed though and get messy.

  3. I think that these pieces are very unique but harder than we may think. It would be hard to keep everything in the right place and not make a mess. One thing that sticks out is that the pictures bring out the small lettering that is still on the pages.

  4. I really like the look of these paintings on the book pages. One thing that sticks out to me is the reflections of the things. I don't know why but its just very interesting. I like these paintings because everyone is unique, and this is a project that i would want to do in our art class, even tho it looks a little difficult.

I like how they can make every detail well defined and it just looks awesome.I think the only thing i would change is some color to it. The details just stick out to me and i really like this artwork.

  8. I think it would be really cool if he/she made the bottom one more around 19th century London. I believe it would fit better because the ink he uses looks like water and soot mixed together. I like the top one but it looks lonely.

  11. I like this piece of art. it would be rather difficult to make sure not to get the ink all over. I would like to have this done with a harry potter image to hang in my house. That would be neat.

  15. Using ink is not an easy medium to work with. One little mistake and it could end up in a disaster. I like how he created these pieces though. Very simple for the first one and gloomy for the next.

  16. I like how you can kind of see the pages and you kind of can't. This is really neat. I love how he used ink.

  17. These art pieces look pretty dark, and not very colorful, but it's kind of pretty. I like how in the last picture, it looks like it's actually raining. I don't like how it could turn out messy. The shadows they did in the second picture really stood out to me.

  26. I think that these are really cool. I like the way they let the ink drip down to make the rain in the one picture. I think it would be better if they used more colors.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think this is very mesmerizing. It looks really interesting and unique. Although is kinda looks dark and depressing. It really looks like they were expressing their sadness throught the art pieces.

  33. This is a cool technique, I like how the ink runs down the page. I would like to try that.

  41. I think this is a really cool project but it would be messy. I think it would be hard to get the ink not to run and mess up the whole project. The thing that sticks out to me is the tiny letter in the background.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I really want to try this, the water color city that we made would look awesome with ink on a page.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think that this is so cool! And it seems a little darker or lonely, but I still think that they have a lot of unique and creative characteristics.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It looks really sad, but also beautiful at the same time. I like how the last one actually looks like it's raining. The shadows stick out to me, it's amazing how they did this with ink.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This would be hard to do. considering it already is full of ink it would spill over and blot a lot. I do not even want to try to attempt this feat.

    ReplyDelete
  48. i think this is so pretty, the people lood sad or lonely though, i think it would be interesting and messy, i can imagine a lot of spilled ink.

    ReplyDelete
  49. i like the second image, its real.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think of newspapers as boring because it inquires reading to do it. I would like if instead of just telling the story they showed it as well.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would love to do something like this because it turns out really cool

  52. I've seen some pretty fantastic art in my days, but this, this passes it all. This piece of art is described by only one word and that one word is phenomenal. Thank you good sir for making such beautiful art and sharing it with the world.

  53. This looks hard so that you don't get the ink to bleed all over the paper. I think they should try taking a stencil and putting the ink in it so that it might not bleed through as much? How do they do the shading as well?

    ReplyDelete
  54. This looks hard, i would become way too stressed out if i tried to make something like this. I like how it looks, it looks like the person incoorporated shadows. I would hate working on this, but it turns out good.

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is so interesting. It is taking something that you see and use everyday and turning it into something that i`ve never seen before. I would like to try this sometime.

    ReplyDelete
  56. this would be hard to do and it would take alot of patients but pretty cool

    ReplyDelete
  57. This has to be my favorite post yet. I like how they used the book pages in the background. They are so unique and creative.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Very touching, cool, and seriously took much time! I love this! I wouldnt mind looking at more of these paintings or sculptures

    ReplyDelete
  59. This is so unique and creative. I would never be able to do something so creative.

    ReplyDelete
  60. This gets the full effect, it shows great detail, and what eveything actually looks like. This is an awsome project ot do i hope we do it.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This is a really creative way to recycle. It is also a great piece. The writing from the book pages in the picture caches your attention but doesn't take away from the main picture that the artist is trying to show.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think that the pictures have a nice dark feel, and are very stylized. I really like the way they convey a sort of mysticism with the art all seeming to be silhouettes.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I find this inspiring! it's cool, takes alot of time i'm guessing!

    ReplyDelete
  64. those look awesome, i love how they use old books to make things like this

    ReplyDelete
  65. this is really neat, the writing on the page kinda gives it a shadow effect which is real cool. I like it a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  66. this is very cool it look like it is made of old peices of news paper. And they used what looks like ink.

    ReplyDelete
  67. this would be one messy project. i think it would be hard to control it also.

    ReplyDelete
  68. This is probably one of my favorite pieces of art to blog about. I find these paintings really cool to look at. I love that he's using old pieces of paper from books to paint on. I think it gives it an older look.

    ReplyDelete
  69. i like how it has a vintage look. i would really like to make something like this because it is really awesome and interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  70. i think its really amazing that the books really arent going to waste, where you can make a piece of art out of something so simple.

    ReplyDelete
  71. This is really cool. This looks like a challenging piece of art. I wonder how long it takes to do this cool art work. I would like to try this art work but it would have take a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love the use of books for the drawing medium. It is a wonderful way to make something like an book into something beautiful. Very inspiring and unique.
