This is the final result of a project I’ve had knocking around for a few weeks now. I wanted to make a bigger version of the ‘Tin Can Green Man’ model that I made last year, and have considered buying large sheets of metal. However, on revisiting the original models, I decided it would be interesting to make my own sheet of metal from a collection of discarded drinks cans. The cans were glued together in a patchwork and folded as before. The only new element, was the addition of some metal ivy leaves that were found in my shed during a clear-out. The model is about 40cm
Having taken a photograph of the tin can model of the modern-day Green Man I developed, I loaded it into the ‘Sketch Book ‘ drawing app on the iPad. I then drew around what I considered to be the most important lines of the image and filled in the shapes with blocked colours. I thus created a ‘logo’ styled image, changing the colours easily using the Fill tool in the app.
