haemoglobin...
...this is what your haemoglobin is doing inside your body though i think some look a bit virus like. the other day i had a brainwave. my two brain cells for once started talking to each other and they came up with the idea of using other colours than black to print etching plates. so off i popped to the print-room and cracked on with some printing. these prints can be seen in the archives if you so wish from when i printed them in black. i cant believe i had never thought about using colour with these. normally its just different coloured paper. once the ball started rolling i thought, mmmm why not block out some of the print with something, a strip of newsprint and then viola, block some out with newsprint circles! so the above is what happened when my cells woke up and started connecting my spaghetti thoughts together. i am thinking i am happy enough with these to enter them into the live brief competition of which the brief is. eh? fingers crossed.

thank you toby. the buttons are difficult to work with in a way. you have to change the whole pressure and the padding of the press when you are creating your textures in the soft ground. sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt.

I really love these prints, as I did the other medical themed ones you did a while back. I like the textures.
