a map of hyper-space

Talking not Doing

Here is a picture of a cat; that’s what the interwebs are for, aren’t they?

So after my last post 07/10, I had a really busy week and came down with the regular autumn cold. I still haven’t processed all of my busy-ness, sent emails or caught up with myself.
So here’s my assistant also having an off day

We are also in negotiations with BT about the on going state of the interweb, which is fun…

So hopefully by next week some sort of normal service will resume and maybe some sort of thoughts will be committed to ‘paper’. For your delectation.

But perhaps not as I am cat sitting which means no more that four hours sleep at a one time.


Pretty Patterns

Recently I had a look at ‘A Map of Hyper Space’ whicht has rather fallen behind with all the other grand projects I have in hand. The design process is all set up now, with a good supply of colours and a big pile of geometric patterns. Theoretically I could draw out the whole Map on graph paper and then read off the chart as all the patterns used on the map at counted. But that would be the heat death of the universe in terms of creativity.

Colour theory

I hasten to add this is not my collection of pre-loved embroidery wools. No siree!

I hasten to add this is not my collection of pre-loved embroidery wools. No siree!

So I was asked to sort this collection so that it could be stored by colour rather in one big sack. But how do you divvy up colour. You could start with Richard of York gave battle in vain, but the “in” is only there because Isaac Newton had an unholy fascination with the number seven. Read the rest of this entry »

Trouble with words

Sorry. This is late because I do have trouble with words but I like to disguise it in my writing and also because my back took longer to recover than I had hoped:-

This last week i managed to temporarily cripple myself with my work practice and a very soft bed. Both things are being fixed but I haven’t done as much paper work as i would like.

Today i wanted to talk about words. Read the rest of this entry »

Some actual geology

Pinks, violets and lilac aren’t normally found on stones in the wild. So all though it’s been fun to work with these colours I’ve also been working with more a more subdued palette. Here is my assistant examining the box of pebbles I’ve collected so far.

Hodge Podge – 4

Well I was so busy running around and waiting in the queue at the bank I didn’t post this on time.

so I’ve been doing a little bit of everything. here is a picture of a chair to start with. Read the rest of this entry »


So another bank holiday, another trip to the countryside. In the garden they have these huge yew hedges. They are certainly a challenge to draw. There is large pallet of greens and the volume aren’t quiet regular enough to be reliable.

Maybe this is something i shoud have documented the other week, but i was too busy having fun (making messes). Here is some research and some more thoughts on the process of making pebble paper and what goes into a composition.

You also get a quick peek of the cactus – they have mainly survived the summer. Sorry it’s taken so long to post, but i’ve not really had my word head on the last couple of days. Read the rest of this entry »
