The deadline for the final project of my course is fast approaching, and this week I've been getting down to creating the prints which will form the main aspect of the final piece. I've been exploring the theme of uncharted waters, and have decided to make a chart of a fictional island which is discovered and documented by a hitherto unknown explorer. The two prints shown below are the geological formation of the island, and how it appears when viewed from onboard ship. Watch this space for further developments!
This week I've mainly been working on designing and printing a limited edition run of screen print posters for my friends The Lone Bellow who are performing all around the UK and Europe for the next week or so. This little number is for their Tuesday show in London town, so get yourselves down there if you're free! It's also the first gig poster I've ever done, and the first time I've designed something entirely digitally (using a drawing tablet to sketch and refine rather than scanning in pencil sketches) - definitely a time-saving approach to use again in the future.
For the past couple of weeks I've been working on some simple linocuts which form a narrative around Ile Saint-Paul, a small island in the Indian ocean which has an interesting history. These two prints explore two different stories - one about a possible cannibalism case, and another about the rumours of pirates using the island as a base to store treasure.
What to expect...
Herein you will find details (or perhaps only mentionings) of projects which are ongoing, completed, or still in the foetal stage.
