Ruby the Kune Kune

21 Apr

 This is Ruby, a marvellous Kune Kune piglet who wriggles and rootles around too quickly to be drawn properly! However quick sketches look a lot livelier and these are what I managed before she changed position. Here they are – I added some colour later on in Photoshop.  Had fun making my own brushes from hand drawn letters, excited about the prospect of doing this with alphabets printed in the press.

In other news, this photograph shows some newly acquired GIANT wooden type from ebay. Random letters, all sorts of sizes & weights –  and the height will work in the Adana presses too which is a bonus. One letter per chase perhaps!

Then, a conversation in the hairdressers about these mavellous letters may have lead to a commission / project….witter witter….more on that soon! Hoping to complete my print run of the Verb Garden by the end of the month.

Anyway, I’m off to the south of sunny Devon for a long weekend. Determined to go in the sea!

Meanwhile, check out Caitlin Hinshelwood’s goregeous flora & fauna prints and textiles (featured recently in Amelia’s Magazine) and also the Cardiff Arcades Project run by photographer Amy Davies.

Enjoy yourselves, more next week x
