Roque’s Friday Films! Art In Creation: My Gathered Heart

It’s Friday! Time for a new edition of Roque’s Friday Films!! This week, I deliver the second installment in my “Art In Creation” series. This one is called “My Gathered Heart”.

In this series, I film the creation of a piece of visual art and layer it with music I recorded that corresponds with the image being drawn.

This is a way for me to explore the multi-media layers that film makes possible. I also wanted to create a film that incorporates three of my favorite things:

Music + Visual Art + Film

After I sketch out the bones of the drawing in pencil, I use a technique I love called stippling (also known as pointillism) in which the image is created using hundreds (or thousands) of dots. This particular drawing harkens to my love of cubism and, along with the music, conveys an image of a heart with its pieces cobbled (or gathered) together after having been broken.

If you enjoyed this film, here is the first in the series that I released earlier this year called “Sunshine Flower”:
