Picture This: postcards competition

I was delighted to have been shortlisted and "highly commended" in the 'Picture This: Postcards and letters beyond text competition' organised by Katie Reid. The exhibition took place at the University of Sussex and featured over 80 entrants. (Mine is the orange evacuation/emergency plane crash pastiche at the top...)


mmm yummy colours...

Just planning the colours for a couple of new small prints as part of the "Bossy Series"....


Vinyl project...

I've been screen printing onto old records for the Spraygraphic Vinyl Record Show in Arizona. There was no particular theme, so I decided to go for a view from space of the (over) friendly planet Popcorny transmitting many hellos and kisses out to the aliens.
(nb. No good albums were hurt in this process ...strictly bad taste only!)
(extra by-line: Of course I didn't have any records of bad taste, I bought them from a charity shop)
"Sending Kisses to the Nice Aliens" Gold screen print onto Vinyl. Special very limited edition...

a couple of photos (of part) of the process ----

painting all the middles of the records black

I used a circle cut out of cardboard to keep the records in place while screen printing

it worked!


Arty Directory 2011

Popcorny appears in the new edition of Arty Directory - Brighton's top 100!


Book Covers: A crafty use for wonky prints...

I couldn't find a diary I liked this year so decided to make one by cutting up some screen prints that had gone badly wrong in the printing process that I couldn't bring myself to throw away.... Collage!! 


"Popcorny Wall Debacle" - my first attempt at animation

Needs quite a bit of tweeking but I thought I'd put it up anyway. (It's actually not as blurry as this still suggests!)
