So, I started a new sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project 2013 tour, finishing two spreads in the process. I’ll keep this blog updated when and where I get more drawings done.
This freshly finished screen print is the second in a series of three and I’ve called it ‘Avocado’. The first can be seen here. The pattern was line drawn on cartridge paper and scanned digitally.

They’re vinyl toys made by Kid Robot. You buy them blank and design them up how you see fit using whatever you see fit. They’re [...]
Hello, here is my latest Glasgow Print Studio job. It’s a five colour screen print and it’s printed on Fabriano 50% Cotton Paper.
