a fresh start…

October 5, 2011

well hello! i am home from holidays, and back in work mode.

last month i started my MA in printmaking at UWE here in Bristol, horrah! i can’t wait to get back into some proper old fashioned inky printing…and no doubt you will see some of what i get up to over the next 3 years. yes, 3 years, it’s not a typo – it’s a part time course, 1 day a week.

i also moved into my new studio with Drawn in Bristol in Hamilton House (under the Canteen for those of you who know Bristol)…it’s so good to be back in a studio environment with other people around me drawing. Drawn in Bristol is a new Illustration collective set up by the wonderful Dave and Bryony, who organise loads of exhibitions which us lucky DIB members get to take part in! follow them on facebook or twitter and the website will be up and running very soon.

in other news my Wow!Gorilla has finally left the streets, and after (2 days worth of!) fixing up his colourfull coat, was auctioned along with all the others to raise just under £500,000 for charity!

so now i am trying to get my head down with some t-shirt designs to get back into drawing mode…here is one of my efforts so far, and as a work in progress any suggestions and feedback would be welcomed. the idea is pretty simple, and there are designs for BLUE and YELLOW too, as you may have guessed. i am planning to print them big over the whole of the front of the T…or would it be better with all the words in one design?
