Final Major Project Underway!
I've made a start on some final design ideas - just about 150 more kodatraces to draw!
I've been trying some batik grounds and some crazy shibori techniques but there's so much to do I almost don't know where to start!
Anyhoo, here's a print I've begun this week that's looking pretty good if I do say so myself!
Last month I spoke to a lovely man by the name of Michael Wong who works for Bay Plastics Ltd based in North Shields, Tyne and Wear. He and the company agreed to sponsor me for my degree show by donating acrylic mount which I'm using as printing block mounts. They were really helpful and generous - thank you guys! The transparency makes placement and registration of imagery easier than traditional wood. I'm hoping to try a few different ideas so watch this space!
