When I went home for Christmas Mum gave me her copy of Edgar Allan Poe's 'Tales of Imagination & Mystery'
I love it
The short stories are perfect for train journeys 

 Inspired and wanting a quick illustration project, I pencilled this..

 And here it is all coloured and whatnot. 
I thought it fitting to be in gothicy black and white

Right now Im watching old school Buffy and eating the tastiest cake ever made by my housemate Stellar

Pheasant Screenprint

These are the plans for a screenprint..
When it came to printmaking I always went for lino but Ive wanted to have a go at screenprinting for ages. The design is from the stencil I spontaneously made one Sunday. I redrew the pheasant (which took far longer than it should have, wish I'd scanned the original in before I cut it up) and I'm gonna have a go at printing it on tshirts aswell. 
Might make it a 2 colour print, depends how adventurous I feel at the time

Made some lovely patterny paper.
Its going to be the end papers for my mini portfolio.

The moths are a Lime Hawk Moth and a Red Underwing. 
The plants are Willow and Alder, the trees they like.


Hopefully have something new to upload by tonight. 
If I don't get it done I might have to fire myself
