(horrible jpeg conversion) Images to be used in my personal project: My initial intention was to use letterforms and symbols to create a landscape and sense of atmosphere. After much fun playing with typewriters and InDesign, I've ended up trying to interpret a poem still using abstract forms. I think there is still the hint of landscape formation but seems to be leaning almost towards a story-book now.. I want to make a small booklet with these images - have a week left to put it all together!

These aren't my thoughts

(as you can see, it didn't fit into the A3 scanner all in one go so I'm afraid it's in pieces)

Week long drawing project. Research artists; consider your own drawing style; produce a piece of work you believe to be a good drawing. I don't know if it's good or not but I know it took a fair chunk of time..

I tried to use this piece as distraction therapy. It's nice to get a bit lost in mark-making. This approach can inspire hour-long sessions of intense focus but unfortunately it's incredibly easy to become lazy and switch on the auto-pilot.

My work seems to be moving towards abstract repetition this semester. I quite like seeing my work going in a 'direction' for once.

My life seems to be about Uni work at the moment. So it's incredibly disheartening that I don't have all that much to show for it..

Screen Printing

The produce of last week's printing workshop. I'll never be amazing at it - I don't have the patience for strict registration and mixing paints to exact colours.. but it was somewhat enjoyable.
(sorry my scanner is a wee bit small - prints look a bit odd. but oh well, I'm just happy I managed to print something this time!)
