Potato prints and collographs in the sequential image project

I thought about drawing line drawings of dogs underneath but felt that they wouldn't be bold enough and would get lost behind the bars. After some experimentation I decided to use a mixture of ripped cardboard prints for the main characters and potato prints using gouache paint for the rest of the characters. I liked the way the gouche merged with the moisture from the potato to give the dogs more organic markings in contrast to the starkness of their printed outlines.
