Print Collection 02-09-11

I’ve been working a lot recently on a series of inkings, but I’ve still been trying to put in a day a week down at the print shop. I’ve been experimenting with different inks under the advisement of a few experienced printers that are more than willing to share their knowledge. Turns out though that the technique I’d developed using a certain type of water based ink doesn’t translate across to the more traditional ‘industry standard’ Charbonelle oil based ink. Its fun to have a play though, certainly takes the pressure off… only one useable image out of nine isn’t so good in a production sense though!

I’ve also tried a different smaller size of paper, inspired by the 6×8 charity art competition I’m entering.

Dave Cat Pic No.7 Cheddar Gorge


Cheddar Gorge is a lovely place in the Mendips, full of caves, culture and fine cheese – but I’m buggered if I’m ever going there again after seeing this brute! They’re coming for us all… this is no monkey future, this is kitty reality!
