New Stuff and Splashy Things

Having now officially started my degree at Bath Spa I can quite happily say I am loving life.

After the indescribable disappointment that was yesterdays one day project (in which I was caterpaulted against my will through the past few years of my art education, into the heart of GCSE) I returned today into the arms of my much missed and unceasingly rewarding secret lover; screen print.

Merely one morning in the print rooms spent priming my screen and I have already caught the art bug and get ready to descend on the world of BA hons, sketchbook in one hand and squeegie in the other. And I haven’t even put ink to page yet.

It’s been over a year since finishing my Foundation Diploma and the buzz of once more being issued a brief from someone who isn’t myself is beyond compare. The possibilities feel truly immeasureable and I’m looking forward to getting back on the project pony.

Needless to say, I’m in a pretty good mood and have chosen to celebrate by bringing you some ickle bits I’ve been doodling in recent days.

Bit o' reptile love never goes amiss.

Tortoise. Hare. Gouache. ‘Nuff said.

This one was the result of attempting work on my next graphic novel, in which the modern day is set against the 1800’s.

It’s a fun little idea I thought might be a nice doodle, finished off with a little watercolour.

Anyway, enough time wasted chatting to cyberspace, it’s off to the drawing board for this new project I should be doing!
