I thought this project might kill me AND never get done, but here it sort-of is, a handprinted book about giraffes. It’s not how it was meant to be at all (apart from the cover) as I have never done this sort of screen-printing before, drawing onto drafting film to make the positive for the light blue layer, and it kept being under- or over-exposed so it’s all patchy and weird. But, it is some giraffes on some paper and that is something to hand in for my MA, maybe I will have another go after my deadline.
Ooh, in other news, LOAf is now available from Etsy, and is in the window of Foyles, where also our MA show will be from the 4th to the 9th of February. Also, HAPPY CHRISTMOUSE!
It says it won’t stop raining all day. Good weather for herding fictional giraffes I suppose.
I’ve drawn three new cards for Earlybird: bearded men trampolining, balloonist beasts and a foxes’ pizza-party. Some of my original cards sold out (weird to think hundreds of people have been given my drawings, and cool – I hope they all had good birthdays/babies/sundry other life-events), so they reprinted those and commissioned these while they were at it.
Apparently, foxes are in, along with squirrels and owls. Owls are so above fashion though, surely? And I say foxes are never less than hip.
In other news, LOAf magazine has got half of its people-funding already, which is splendid! Please add a crumb or crust to the bread-basket if you can, it will undoubtedly make you more of a man.
By the way, I didn’t mean to imply squirrels were just a fad.
