more boats

I printed yet another boat print at the weekend, despite the fact no one ever buys them.....I think I have finally come up with a plan for combining the fun I have scribbling the water with something else, so I'm going to try and make this the last boat (it's going to be tough, I'll need some kind of rehab or something). I've been listening to Smog/ Bill Callahan all day today - enough to cheer anyone up!

OOh my Tugs to the rescue print did make it into here though!

big birds and nice wheels

I printed a new print on saturday - feels like it's been ages since I did something new on paper...(though I printed 2 new bags recently too) and here they are...

big bird bag (they're printed on the thicker canvas - this one is my practice bag)

cmyk (though not exactly) nice wheels bag

The new bike print was looking a bit wallpaper-ish until I printed the fluro honk! Hurrah for the honk...

I'm building up quite impressive colour combinations on my apron, sorry about the blurrienss, if only I always had a proper photographer on hand.

Photos by Miss Third

A few weeks back Stephanie Elizabeth Third took some photos of me printing at Spike Island for the september issue of The Bath Magazine a.k.a. known as The Bristol Magazine. Now I'm not keen on having my photo taken but she did a good job of keeping me entertained while snapping away, while I did a good job of spilling lots more stuff than usual and generally making a mess...there are more pics on her blog http://stephthirdphoto.blogspot.com (not all of me - phew)

I like this it makes me want to print things upside down on purpose

I'll put some pictures of the Big Bird bag and the Nice Wheels bag next time

snippets of things to come

Another sunny saturday spent printing at Spike Island - I took my camera along to capture the glory and slight sweatiness (mmm) only to find out I'd left the battery at home - oops. Still my trusty phone did the job and I was also having my photo taken properly by a pro, so look out for shots of me concentrating/gurning/trying to ignore the camera while printing coming soon!

In the mean time here's some snippets of things to come...
