Inking Up

18 brunz drawings

I’m working on a series of drawings for my next exhibition in December. I find it’s a problem deciding what to do for exhibitions. It’s relatively easy if you’re given a theme and plenty of time, or if you’re only putting one or two works into a large group show, but I have to do a minimum of 20 pieces for this one. I’ve been wondering for ages what to do with my sketchbook drawings and I’ve decided to redraw a series of them onto ‘transfer’ prints. My exhibition’s working title is ‘In The City’ because I’m using sketches of people, and things, that I scribble as I’m wandering around the streets. I’ve been doing them in batches, preparing the background ‘transfer’ prints five at a time at Swansea Print Workshop, then pencilling several and then inking them. If you want to know how to do a transfer print, click here. I’ve got about 15 sorted, so just a few more to go, then the framing, then the labelling, then the opening night – maybe it’s easier to go and stack shelves in a supermarket! πŸ˜‰

    In the Reith Lectures, Grayson Perry says the worst thing to say to an artist is “your pictures remind me of …” implying lack of originality. Scooting through the printmaking tag on WordPress Reader, I spot yours a mile off. You have a unique and recognisable voice.
    Where is your show, please? It might be an excuse to visit Wales.

    They’re looking good with the transfer prints

    Sounds like a great way to use your sketches. It will be interesting to see how they turn out.
