Taking pictures for a necklace I am going to sell on eBay. I have to do it at Nate's as I haven't got access to the internet at home, it's due the 8th of April and it cannot come any quicker! Currently eating jelly beans whilst savouring the internet, and watching Wonders of the Universe. I am tired because of the clocks going forward one hour, but excited about the lighter evenings.
I have rediscovered my love of printing, the smell, the hard to shift ink on my hands, the uncertainty of the print, everything. I even like cleaning the printing rollers with white spirit! (even if it does melt any nail varnish I have on)
Currently wrapping up the last project of the year before essay writing, I want to spend everyday in the print room, I don't even mind the annoying tech guy that hovers over what you are doing (he is a real health and safety type of guy) Basically, I don't want this project to end.
My project is on the sea, so the lino is of the ocean (probably obvious) can you spot the boat?
The last two weeks have been about lino cutting. It was a process I was initially scared of, what if it went wrong? I had spent £2.50 on this piece of lino, what if I made it look rubbish?! After speaking to a tutor at uni who made me cut into it a bit more fiercely, I've decided I really, actually quite like it. So for the last 14 days I have been happily hacking into lino. It smells a bit funny, and makes my hand ache but the finished result is worth it.
