Let’s See Where It Takes Me …..

scrapbook

I’m a bit old school when it comes to sketchbooks, I take the term literally and I sketch in them. But one of my lockdown challenges is to try working differently, to get out of my comfort zone, so I’ve been rethinking how to use a sketchbook. I had a few A3 brown paper sketchbooks knocking around that I haven’t used because the paper is poor quality. And I am one of the decreasing numbers of people who still buys a newspaper (the ‘i’) so I thought I’d start cutting interesting images and pieces of text out of the papers and stick them into the sketchbook, as reference / source materials. I’m not sure where it’s going to lead, I haven’t done this before, but it’s already generating some ideas. Let’s see ……..

 

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

In this one, I combined snippets of a bird and discarded plastic with the image of a bug, part of the Museum’s fascinating vintage collection.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
