computer love...

...and hate. i miss printmaking. i have been unable to go since my last visit in January due to work and severe lack of funds. i have been working on a couple of etching plates that i hope to take in over the next month if possible. the potatochop is ok, just takes up a lot of my phaffing time as i am trying to create some work on there. may go back to the paint and brush. all is quiet on the textile front as i am still awaiting the delivery of the dyes and fixer etc that i ordered. i do have shop bought coloured cotton but it ain't the same as dying it yourself. i like to create it all but may try the other fabric if i have time in between all the cafe work. i have more than enough rage to release through the mechanical pencil. angry scribbles are great. at the weekend the mister warned me that he was going to start a month/thirty days of beard 'growing' hence the lion above. i have been drawing website typography since January. what is wrong with me?
