making zines

I recently made a fresh batch of Lost and Found zines in a new set of colours, its quite a tricky zine to assemble and a time consuming process, surprisingly therapeutic!

here comes the bride..

Here's the first in a new series of occasions cards I'm currently working on. Each card will be hand printed onto recycled card and come with a matching envelope. I'm going to cover a number of special occasions and thought that with the royal wedding coming up next week a wedding card would be a good place to start! This card along with a number of others will be available in my etsy shop soon. Watch this space...

mural at the Bowery

Yesterday I finished painting a mural at the Bowery arts centre in Headingley, Leeds. Its a collection of hand painted picture frames, some of which house images and some house posters advertising upcoming creative courses at the Bowery. The mural is on the wall that leads into the classroom. I'll put some photos of the finished piece up on here soon, for now here's a few of the work in progress...

The image at the bottom shows 6 new screen prints recently finished and framed, they will be on display and for sale at the Bowery from Friday this week (15th). On Friday there is a private view for all of the new work that will be on display, its from 6pm-9pm I'll be there, come and say hello!

More photos of the new prints to follow soon, they'll be available in my etsy shop soon too. Now, back to my coffee, book and much needed day off!

zine making workshop

Last weekend I taught a zine making workshop at West Yorkshire Print Workshop. During the day long workshop the group learned about a number of paper folding techniques and explored content ideas. Lots of super little zines were produced, many containing interesting collage techniques and drawings.
