With a little help from Jo at the Stew Print Rooms, another project has come to fruition!
has been transformed into wallpaper and now adorns my guest bedroom’s chimney breast.
Having a job finding somewhere to screen print it, wish I’d got on with it whilst I was still a student! It might have to be digitally printed but it seems like a shame. I guess I could send it off somewhere, I went into the art school yesterday and they tried to put me off trying to use the facilities, pointed me in the direction of these printing firms…
I had this idea a while back but have only just got around to creating the pattern. I was thinking about hearts and attachments… the people I loved and the people they loved who I might not even know, I had a picture in my head of a tangle of love connections. Initially I thought about the tubes turning into hooks and hooking onto other hearts sometimes, because the people you love don’t always love you back but then I thought this could be represented by the colours – the red turning to blue as an indication of the direction of love flowing like deoxegenated blood flowing into the heart and red oxegenated blood flowing out of it.
I’ve been hanging about on my local allotment, drawing, photographing bits and pieces. I’ve worked up a few of the sketches to these illustrator drawings, with a view to either making a story book or a short animation. I’d like to animate it, but I do need to get a good story together first… anyone got any ideas?
One nice thing about not having any paid work right now… I get to finish off all the projects I started and didn’t finish. I would really like to get some of my patterns printed onto fabric or wallpaper and into shops.
The other thing I’ve been meaning to do for a while – get my films onto my tango website: http://www.metrotango.co.uk/gallery.html
