Fascinating blog about femicide – worth reading

3 Mar

Grim but important reading. And for those apologists out there, this doesn’t negate the fact that people of all ages and both genders are the victims of murder, but the extent to which women / girls are murdered by men in Britain is disproportionate and pretending otherwise is never going to confront the problem and potential solutions honestly and constructively.

There are a lot of isolated incidents around.

Hares And Colombians

I’ve been doing a lot of drawings from British wildlife photos and I’ve started to cut little lino blocks from them. I’ll be taking these to Swansea Print Workshop soon to ink them up and print them on the old Columbian Press, one of my favourite pieces of machinery. I’ll probably use an oil-based relief/litho ink in black onto a white Japanese paper and limit the editions to 30 or 40 each.

Here’s a Colombian, isn’t it lush? The one at the print workshop dates from 1855. I love antique machinery and tools.
