Time period.

Rushen Coatie was thought to have been written around 1890, so when looking into Scottish artists of the time i have found the obvious and very stylized, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

However it is not these images that i am taking my inspiration but these drawings i have discovered. I like the use of colour, and the way he used white space. Austin pointed out in our "group meeting", that consisted of only me and Austin, that there is almost a typographic layout look to his drawings. He draws a landscape in a portrait page, almost as if trying to make a portrait out of it.

Another aspect of Mackintosh's work that i want to reflect in my work is the way he handled type within his work.
