Sneaky holiday!

So no print today or for a while as I'm squeezing in another holiday before teaching starts again!

I'll be back in a week. Hope to see you all then and wishing everyone a good week with sunshine too ;) I'll leave you with these guys to keep you company. X x x

Really enjoying reusing old print plates and cutting them up to create new shapes. Odd little characters just seem to be presenting themselves, so I'm allowing them to develop and see where it goes. Making me laugh - so that's always a good thing!

Back to a more illustrative approach today. Reusing past shapes that just seemed to make this character below. Can't help but feel my breakfast strawberries have been influencing me....

I'm having one of those weeks when I've not really got any sort of direction. The hard bit of this 365 Print Project is printing on the days when I don't really feel like it - on the plus side - going public has forced me to keep up with my practice and keep pushing forward till I find my way again. More research and gathering of information is needed...

Today's print was inspired by yesterday's. .. plant based again

Rushed this print really so I'm not happy with it but I'm trying to work outside my comfort zone - colour definitely does that but needs more development. Quite like the close ups and the collaged together sections of the characters using the layout feature in instagram...

Bit of character building today. I knew that jumper print would need a face..
The eyes need work but he's got potential. .
