So firstly I did a lecture at Swindon College of Art and Design yesterday, and I was presenting to the Foundation and Illustration Degree students. It wasn't full, but the guys who made it were enthusiastic and asking questions at the end so all good. Below are some photos of me pointing lots and looking gormless, and doing a collagraph. The results were ok but it was meant to show a different way of using the printing process, using it more intuitively.
I have just received a note from one of the students at Swindon, hi Enoki, and she mentioned me on her blog here. It is notes like hers that makes the long journeys worth it. Thanks : )
|me pointing at stuff!|
|pulling a face|
|students looking through my sketchbooks etc|
|Collagraph plate done in 5 minutes!|
Then came the badges! I ordered some postcards and some badges for the Stuff fair at PCAD next week and they've come... very exciting! and slowly getting bits and pieces together, putting a few bits in frames and I need to do some prints to sell too and I took my book to the printer today, and got one printed off. It's digital which is a huge compromise, but in the time and with my budget, it was my only choice....but they look ok! So I'll pick them up next week. Maybe a lithography set later in the year, if these sell! so all looking ok and I'm pleased!
