Mini Monos

I spent today at the Creative Bubble artspace in the city centre. I’m a member of an art collective called 15 Hundred Lives and we’re at Creative Bubble all week with an exhibition of our work and each of us is doing demonstrations of techniques that we use.

Today I worked on some new little monotypes, based on drawings I did on my Samsung Galaxy Tablet of foxes.

I used Intaglio Printmakers oil based relief ink and tried a number of different papers; two by Saunders, a creamy smooth one and a white textured and also a smooth white cartridge paper and finally a lightweight tissue paper. Each gave a very different line, the tissue paper had the crispest but didn’t take textures well.
