'December 25th'

The best thing about Christmas.. the kids, ; - )  My eldest niece refers to her toys collectively as 'the kids'!  Never failing to put a smile on my face, here she is sporting one of her festive outfits.. lovingly designed by fellow silkscreen-ers and friends, Marcus & Hayley.  Available here.

Last job of the Year..

My last job of 2012.. well the rejects for it.  The client & I decided to work in reverse and opted for a black ground.  Would've been a shame for these to go un-acknowledged though.  Happy Holidays, ; - )

It's really nearly here ..

.. today my website has gone to be built.  I'm not entirely sure what this entails so i'll leave the techy bits to the techy people & look forward to its glamorous return.  It'll give me something to show orf' about in that hibernatory month of January.

Variations of variations..

James & Ross from Creative Agency Two Times Elliott, approached me with their design for an attractive graphic two colour silkscreen.  Rather than having 2o prints the same colour way, I decided to laboriously print one colour at a time, gradually building to a collection of 4o.  Therefore each print would remain unique.  Problems with screen 'snap' (I thought) leant in my favour.. the ink almost blotting itself against the screen mesh, leaving a textured half tone imprint as a kind of random third colour.  Never wanting to print anything perfectly, these chance hiccups embellished their artwork along the way.  Available to purchase any moment now from here..

Seasonally affected.. ?

It's that time of year again, heavy skies and a lot of grey.  I wondered if my meteorological obsessions had in some way inspired me as I set about these fluorescent fades this afternoon.  I certainly felt uplifted when the screen retracted to reveal these lovely luminescent shapes, glowing from the surface.
