it's gunna tip it down...

...these are segments of several different screen prints put together so you can see all the different options for the raindrops. these little crying cloud was one of them things that had been living on the 'to-do' list as a little doodle. there are some white clouds but they don't show up well on a scan at all and with regards to the previous post about doing adjustments on scans etc-well i tried to do that and it went wrong. he is quite a shy cloud but likes to eat chip butties and is quite naughty as he rains all the time and doesn't listen to mother nature when she tells him to stop. these are printed onto calico fabric and i am hoping to sew them up on sunday, similar to how the teeth were made. i know i am moving on saturday and if i have to stitch in cardboard city then let it be so. first room to get sorted out will be the new little office room though.


its raining its pouring...

...debbie may be snoring later on. a random screen print from today. it is a one of them tester ones on newsprint that works out quite well in the end. there are some white clouds underneath all the drops but they cant quite be seen on this scanned in image. maybe i should have played with the adjustments a bit. another thing to cram in and learn over the summer.



hare and the tortoise...

...this is for penny who wanted a closer look at the small prints that i have packaged and posted a picture up of yesterday. this is a hard ground and soft ground etching print that was based on an alternate story of the hare and tortoise. the tortoise wins as per normal but i cant really remember the poem and why it was different than the traditional story. its this noggin-it is fair tired and sleepy now as i have been in the print room today. yay for the print room. err...so yeah i am supposed to be packing for Manchester but that's what the hours in the night time are for. all nighter central.
