a journal of original drawings and screen prints of animals


Thursday, February 11, 2010

Lately I've been collecting old images of birds. This particular print is by J. G. Keulemans, a New Zealand artist from the 1800's I believe. I think I must have an affinity for plain birds which probably says plenty about me too.

I've been madly working on the collages and bird drawings. Currently I have three about to be made into magnesium dyes for printing. Possibly more if I work fast.

As well, there will be some new silk screen images soon.

There are some people I know (who will remain nameless) that wouldn't bulk at that amount of work, but I'm not one of them.
Don't get me wrong, I love the doing of it and the newness of it, let alone it's potential; it's just that when I think about it, it seems a bit overwhelming.
