on my bicycle

a productive day in the studio. some collages and sewn collages. i have sorted out work for shows and done lots of writing in my diary. i also started a present for my mum's birthday which i wish i could show you but... i can't! anyway, her birthday is in march... so not too long to wait!
i like this bicycle. i think it would make a lovely patterns, maybe for a screen print on textiles.

shows coming up and another cloud box

here are some little previews of some work that i am putting into a show at the brunswick street gallery in march. these works are etchings collages with photographs, old stamps, split pins and other prints etc. they will be framed and for sale!

the cloud box is another little sketch i have been playing with. a little abstract image for an abstract thought.

the cloud box

here is monsieur millimetre catching a cloud and sending it off to australia. it is a new little idea i am working on for the cloud book. i shouldn't say much more so that when i finally get around to finding a publisher, you won't already know the whole story!

the other image is a landscape i did in my sketch book of an old photo looking down towards torquay in victoria.

more to come soon x

we make great things

so here we begin making great things. this is a collaborative project started with aine cassidy in london. we started printing on the adana press at the end of last year and made some christmas cards that maybe some of you were lucky to receive!

keep an eye out because we'll be doing some pretty cool projects together in the near future!

also check out aine's blog. she's a very talented one!

back to the studio

hello and happy new year!... so today was my first official day back in the studio! i was quite excited. i tore up some paper for an edition of etchings, i cleaned up, i set out all ready to print and i bought a new work book. it's a lovely hahnemuhle 25x25cm one... big pages for big ideas!

i have made a few illustrations. this one is for insync surveys. if they don't like it, i think it will go into my little book i am making. mon. millimetre is riding the unicycle here.

also some painting ideas and some cook book drawings/patterns for adrian's cook book.

and then at the end of the day...

beach time! we live but 8 doors from the shore. it's a lovely sea change.
