My creative head space...

I'm addicted to filling my sketch book at the moment.

I'm planning on working on a couple of fabric art collages, I haven't done any for a while and I'm missing working with fabric and a needle.

The rough in the corner is Lily listening to her baby brother in my tummy....... on second look I think I need a trip to M&S for a good maternity support bra!... oooo might use a bit of creative licence and perk them up a bit! and work on that outline!! ...eeee, if only my pencil was magic and I could do that in real life....wow and all the other bits that no longer defy gravity.......

And back in the room!



The gorgeous glasses case is by made at Greenview

The little red print out reference is by illustrator & artist Joan Hickson, from a child hood programme called Joe from the 70's...... that I possibly can't remember, my mum told me about it.....I'm way too young, and found lovely reference here!

This is last weeks idea of a 'Japanese Spring' print, worked up to colour separations ready for screen printing next week,


I used this wonderful copyright free images book for reference by the fantastic Dover Book shop in London.


and this is my little Sky dreaming, worked into separations for screen printing, although I don't think they'll be time to do both prints in a day...depends on how much Haribo I eat!

So this is what I've been up to in my wee creative space, see more creative spaces at the very creative Kootoyoo.
