Chicken Run

This just conjures up an images of some very unhappy chickens! Found near petticoat market in Shoreditch, London. I was visiting Shoreditch as my work was on display at D&AD, a strange sort of trade fair for illustrators, designers and advertisers. 

It was a really great week of meeting people, showing off and browsing some fabulous vintage clothes shops on Brick lane!

Screen Printing Round Two!

After quite a few failed experiments I have now changed my screen block and drawing fluid and it has exposed the screen so much better!! I look forward to posting the results soon, I will be printing as soon as the screens dries off.

New Screen Printing kit!- Failed attempt No1.

I recently purchased a home screen printing kit, I have been waiting to use it for a while and even built a hinged bed so I can hold the screen in place and print on my own. I don't have the facilities for exposing photo emulsion as yet, so I created my first print using screen drawing fluid and screen block. This was trickier to use than i anticipated and ended up putting the screen block on waaaaay to thick! As a result my image did not some out very well, and a lot of the detail was missing, bum.  Now I am just looking forward to creating my next print....wahoo!

Its been too long!

I haven't blogged for a while,  after the madness of setting up my degree show I have enjoyed some down time, maybe a little too much! The ECA degree show opens on Saturday the 12th June, and is going to be excellent!
