Objects of desire

Started taking photographs of some of the objects I plan to feature in my illustrations for the Maker's Palette project. It was pretty difficult narrowing down my collection of weird and wonderful things but these are some that made the cut. Included are a russian doll, wooden puppet, giant peg, vintage tea cup and saucer and my beloved yellow glass horsey.

The Maker's Palette

Recently I got the rare opportunity to spend a couple of solid hours at uni doing my own work. I spent the time working on my Maker's Palette sketchbook which is coming along nicely. I have decided that for the project I am going to concentrate on the idea of found objects and my tendency to gather and collect the random curios and ephemera that clutters my house something rotten. The plan is to take photos of my favourite finds then turn them into monoprints and collages.

I ♥ monoprinting

Made some monoprints today using found images from magazines. Rather like the first one but less keen on the other two. Unfortunately I don't have the patience to make really beautiful detailed monoprints so they remain quite graphic in style. Not sure whether I'm going to use them for anything yet.

Bored on a Sunday

Thought it was the start of something then quickly realised it wasn't, oh well they only took a couple of hours to knock up. Haven't lost my ability to work super quick it seems. Maybe I should slow down?
