artstream & notebook giveaway




i was contacted by susan of artstream studios a few months back asking me to take part in an exhibition called 'the incredible print show'. i had a screen made from a drawing i did a while back called plantlife. i used my weave design as a abstact background then printed over the top with the new screen. finally i added these large circles - the colours that come through because of the layering are really pleasing. i did 6 of them, all similar but in different colourways. it was really refreshing to print in this way and i've decided to do more of it when i have time.
i have spent today clearing up the bombsite that is my studio - it's funny how you can work while a mountain of crap dwarfs you, then all of a sudden it really pisses you off and you can't do another thing until it's sorted and tidy, despite the one million other things you have to do. weird. (including big!!! news, but i can't reveal it yet...oh, the suspense!)
on a different subject, if you've ever wanted one of my notebooks but you haven't got around to ordering one or you'd like one but frankly you think they're too overpriced and you're a tight wad, fear not! visit the tea for joy blog for a chance of winning one. and i'll even post overseas. because i'm nice like that. or stupid.

I would love a notebook, but I'm not a tight wad; however, I'll enter to win anyway. However, I've been trying to sketch and am afraid I might ruin the notebook with my awful drawings. hehe. That's truly why I haven't purchased one just yet.

You're so funny...how old are you, 13? Anyway, this work reminds me or East Indian tattoos and screen printing. I like the layering.
