This is the view from my creative space today,
I'm working on the kitchen table, for more light from the big windows which also act as a great light box for tracing images onto fabric and paper.
There are some colour separations for a couple of screen prints I plan to do next week. One is an owl based on this commission I did. An old Christmas craft book given to me by my lovely friend Tanya ( which I'll show in more detail on the run up to Christmas) A cup of fennel tea ( I love aniseed and Liquorish!)
Copyright free back grounds book from Dover Books in London ( They have a massive selection of resource books for designers and crafter's well worth a look) And a Christmas screen print colour separations for next week...let it snow!
A wallpaper sample I picked up from B&Q, I loved the colours and want to use as a guide for a screen print.
A fabric art sketch, inspired by Sonny singing "flooooat...fluuuuuter Flyyyyyyy" (in the broadest Yorkshire accent! ) around the house after watching Back Yardigans.
And a wonderful little book by Tim Biskup called The Jackson 500 Volume One which has gorgeous art works in.
And finally...oooo it's a long creative space today! a lot to get off my chest..it's therapy!
These are sketches following a conversation with Skyla about the seasons and if they were people what would they look like? Sky did some ace pics, I'll have to show you ( but this post is long enough...my life story!!)
So I started with Summer above?...
Spring...sporty in tracky and trainers with a daffy head!...
Summer again ...( really not sure about Summer...needs more work)
and finally winter.
I think I'm going to make these to fabric artworks, and start with Autumn, what do you think?
How would you do Summer? It's my favourite season yet I'm finding it hard to do, I want to put my fave flower in a sun flower, we'll see ....it's all a working progress.
And if anyone is still awake at this point!...I'm wanting to do a Christmas give away over the next couple of weeks - just because I love Christmas so much and want to celebrate in bloggy way too!
