Digital Paintings

Kevin MIller

I have created from digital sketches 3d laser cut artforms using FabLab. I digitally paint the original image in an app called Layerpaint on a my android phone. The phone is always with me so it is the perfect thing to pull out and work on if I see something I can use to create an image.

Although the images are abstract i usually find the shapes and colours from things in real life, digital painting is incredibly fast for this, before it there has never been a way to record a series of colours in a few seconds. I  tweak the images in Photoshop and covert to vector patterns in Illustrator and Inkscape. After laser cutting the work is (much more slowly!) painted and assembled by hand in my studio using the original digital painting as reference.
