Watercolour silkscreen print onto calico. My teacher was pretty sure this wouldn’t work, but I gave it a go as an experiment and it turned out much better than expected- it really looks like it’s been painted onto paper! I think the only other way I’d get tone and detail like this onto fabric would be to use the digital printer, which takes way longer and is uber expensive. They only had lightweight calico in stock but I think something heavier will pick up more detail for next time. I’m pretty proud of myself for doing this; experimenting with techniques is something I really love and I haven’t had a mess around doing something new for ages!

I finished my book! Remember all those watercolour animals I painted? Well that’s what they were for and this is the cover for it. After much trial and tribulation trying to figure out a closing method for the cover, I decided a bit of string tied in a bow was the way to go (and it kind of matches the paint). I’ll try and get some decent photos of it in it’s final state soon, but I’m really pleased with the results of this illustrative endeavor.October 15th with 3 notes | reblog
All my housemates are going out so I decided to crack out Photoshop and do something productive. I made this button pattern using illustrations from my summer sketchbook and I actually think it’s quite cute.September 26th with 17 notes | reblog

Yay original content!
Inky things from my sketchbook. It’s about migration of the souls down to the underworld and movement in a flock and such that I’m gonna translate into a stitched quilt.May 16th with 7 notes | reblog
