More Prepping

A Digitally Altered Photo of a Manhole Cover

Photoshopping

I did some more preparation today, using source photos of manhole covers around the Waun Wen area of the city (taken by Melvyn Williams). I used Adobe Photoshop and put them through some filters and turned them black and white. I added halftone dots to a few and a couple I turned into negatives. I’ll print them out onto acetates to use as stencils for photographic silkscreens. It’s all very tecchie – I love it!

Part of the Home and Hinterland community arts project in partnership with Swansea University’s Taliesin Arts Centre.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the antique taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these vintage artefacts 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.

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