Life continues on hard mode and I have discovered a whole set of easter eggs I had no idea about. So until usual service resumes here is a slice from the archive.

Enjoy.

There were Dragons

Well I guess I can post this now that I’ve heard that I’m not in the exhibition.

Printing this monster was a pain in the behind. Hopefully Ive learned by ‘lets not be over ambitious’ lesson this time. Read the rest of this entry »

Juxtaposition

The second book we are going to make in class, in addition to the concertina, is a stab bound pocket book. This is very simple to construct as you just sew the pages together. Traditionally there is one big difference between the two book types.  Read the rest of this entry »

A larger fence that still stops

I cut a new plate of the same subject. to give more space for the fence, or lack of it to breathe. I wanted to see what adding colour would look like.

Here are the final prints on this subject for the moment. One day it would be nice to produce a small edition, once I’ve chosen the colours. Read the rest of this entry »

Space ship fit out

I started this in September. It is an eighteen page concertina book.

It has got to the stage where everything is coloured, but there is lots more detail work to do. There is a mixture of ink, colour pencil, water colour, gauche and the odd sticker.

And books are special things so it’s interesting to make them. Read the rest of this entry »

Have a warm and well feed mid winter season.

These three are host, tea and water. They are proofs for working on cutting techniques and to see the behaviour of he press. More work to be done in the new year (and over winter break).

Fiery Pearls of Wisdom

Part of the narrative of the origami pot is that the Dragons have left off hunting the Fiery Pearl to stop for a cup of tea. Therefore the Pearl has to go somewhere on the pot and I’ve put it is on the lid.

The question though is how and where and when? Read the rest of this entry »

Hurry up and wait – crocheting

I’ve been doing a lot of hurry up and wait recently and taking up some of that time, when the brain isn’t up to anything more, doing even more crochet.

Nigel 3.0 has got rather boring (250 + stitches per row), but there are is also some amazingly hideous yarns out there to break me out of a rut. Read the rest of this entry »
