I'm aiming to have some Christmassy stuff up on the Etsy shop as soon as possible. I started printing card no. 1 today. Made the mistake of exposing all 3 separations on the same screen, which means I have to wait for it to dry between each colour.
Looking ok so far, though.

It's not -totally- what I had in mind. I definitely could have done with planning the colours through a lot better! As a process test it answered a few questions, though.
Sorry about the blurry photo. Not much light in the flat when it's gloomy outside! By the way, the paper actually is that colour - 'mushroom' apparently. It's not just bad white balance!

These are the 6 separations I drew, then exposed directly onto the screens. I find it nearly impossible to not smudge graphite all over the paper while I'm drawing, but then I suppose I don't have the cleanest style of drawing anyway so I don't worry about that too much.

Archive Print Etsy Shop!
At the moment it's got the two prints I posted earlier, including a very nice framed 'Long Ears & Short Ears'. We'll be adding more stuff very soon, including cards, more prints, bags and all that jazz.
(No actual jazz for sale)
This is colour 3 of at least 4. I want to do more layers over the top with details and roads and so-on. I'm basically making it up as I go along and treating this print as an extension of my sketchbook.
Anyone who's done any screenprinting before will no doubt be a-gape at my incredibly high-tech set-up!

Some planning sketches:
My friend James has commissioned me to do a large (250mmx500mm) print for him. Choosing a size that's larger than I can fit on my screens has possibly made things harder than they need to be for myself, but there we go!
I'm very much looking forward to getting stuck into making the print as I've not printed this big before. Slightly apprehensive about how on earth I'm actually going to go about it...

Some more screenprinted animals. Less ambiguous this time.
This is based on a diagram from The Wonder World of Snow and Ice, which has some very neat isotype illustrations (cheers for the lend, Anna!)
Another hand-screenprinted, signed and numbered 2 colour run of 15 that's yours for a paltry tenner - mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I've been enjoying drawing ambiguous animals recently, as per the card below. I suppose this one is some sort of camelweaselllama. With boots.
This is one of a short run of 15 hand-pulled 2-colour screenprints on nice 'wholemeal' A4 card. If you want one, they're £10 each (signed and numbered) - drop me an email at email@example.com

Here's a short mix of summery, laid back, vaguely funky stuff. One of two I managed to do in the short space of time I had my decks set up today!
No tracklist, I'm afraid, but some featured artists are Pierre Henry, Spirit, Loading Zone, The Bee Gees, Sugarloaf, Las Grecas, James Gang, Small Faces and a few others...

So yeah, Martin Jones and I did a large mural for Begbrook Primary School. It was all four sides of a storage building and it was great fun to do. I've not got good shots of the completed mural yet, so I'm only uploading detail shots for now. Full shots and timelapse to follow.

Elle and myself designed a 'save the date' card for our friends Simon and Annabelle's impending wedding bash. We based it on a library date card (the ones that went inside library books with the return date, before libraries went extinct).
