Screen printing

During the summer I ordered a home screen printing kit, and attempted to use it on a couple of different images to test it out. This is one of the houses that I drew on one of my days drawing in St Leonards, and is a 3 colour print with pencil added.

A summer in Hastings

This summer I decided to get away from the computer and get back to drawing, so I was lucky enough to be able to spend time by the sea in Hastings. For a couple of weeks I would set out each day before it got too hot (!) and draw the beautiful buildings in Hastings and St Leonards. These drawings are all A3 in size (apart from the Fish Bar).

Kitty and Algernon

It's been quite a while since I posted anything, so I'm starting off with a backlog of work, and will hopefully come up to date with what I'm working on now.

This was a picturebook that I worked on last year called 'Kitty and Algernon', and includes some of the sketchbook work and different printing and drawing techniques.

The final dummy book includes some full colour pages along with some rough layout pages. It's a story about a fox who sneaks into school and ultimately saves the dinner ladies from a fire!

Back to school...

I've been doing some sketchbook work at a school, and I have to be quick as the children keep moving around. The best ones are when they are intently doing some drawings themselves!

Wilfred and the shepherd - some development work from a story I was working on last term. 

An inspiring day at the V&A yesterday in the ceramics section.
