fish collage...

...oh how i wish i was going to see the sea and all its waves sometime soon. this is abit of experimental digital work if you can call it that. i have just scanned in two layers-scraperboard fish and a tissue collage layer. then i played with the layer setting. nothing exciting i know but just trying to get some visual things going so i understand the computer abit more. still aint taken with digital work-it just all seems abit flat to me-well i aint got a clue what i am doing! i like being able to actually layer things up i guess with the printing work and combining printing techniques, like for example being able to create an etching layer and then taking the print from that to the silkscreen and making seperate layers from that print. like doing what the computer does but actually doing it for yourself. good olde worlde techniques.
houses...

...just thought i would pop the house doodles on my blog-this is a segment of a page. i have been drawing these whenever i can-havent done any for a while. i doodle them on the train back to manchester or huddersfield or on the buses back in huddersfield. i normally try and cover a page of my travelling sketchbook with a journey. the first doodles i ever did this way are really bad but as i kept on doodling they got better but then they got worse as i tried to get to much onto one page. on another note - the book cover work is going abit slow at the moment and the deadline is tomorrow.
