Revisions

Not that ive actually managed to post about my finalized mars print, but ive decided i really dont like it. Its not me.

So im going for something a bit different:

Just a first sketch, proof of concept type thing. Not total thrown the baby out with the bath water, just…

The next book?

I signed up for the Japanese wood block print and book binding course for the second time, and have a vague idea what kind of books we might be making. I was doodling on the train the other day and came up with these.

Major Tom?

So this half term i’ve been working with some of the plates i’ve made at City Lit almost a decade ago. I’m reworking them for the Planet Box Set Project college is running. Read the rest of this entry »

this won’t make much sense because you aren’t reading this in the same order that i’m publishing them, but no wonder i don’t post regularly – it because its taken over an hour to up load this set of images. ahhhhhhhhh!

I now I’v got a lot of projects on at the moment, so here’s another one –  a class of Japanese woodcut and book binding. Two of my favourite things. extending an image in time (instead of space as with my origami). Read the rest of this entry »
