City of the World

My small contribution to the giant City of the World project in which various printmakers around the world carve a small piece and Maria Arango-Diener nobly co-ordinates, prints and sends out the final product, all married up. A labour of love indeed. Yes it has been carved in reverse, I flipped it in the computer. Called Graffiti, I felt that every city should have at least some tho' I wanted mine to share a positive note.

Spring 2012

This blog has not been updated for nearly half a year, so what has been happening? I am working through an Open College of the Arts Printmaking course and here are some of the prints made during this time. Printmaking by post? Yes it not only is possible thanks to a really switched on tutor and great materials as guides and instructions, but it is really working. I needed feedback and a good kick to get out of an artistic rut, and I believe it to be time and money well spent. Mind you it does take quite a bit of time.

The Cherry tree print was made for an online group Barenforum to help raise funds for the Japanese after the earthquakes and Tsunami in March; called 'Alone' . Next to it is 'Pompeii Memory', followed by Maiden Castle and lastly Avebury Mystery.
