The print above is from the drawings I did of the Curlew a few weeks back and he had a super long beak but little feet. I've now got a whole pile of drawings that I can turn into bird prints so I'm looking forward to making them up over the next few weeks. The thing about the stencil screenprinting is once I have my drawing I still don't know what it might look like and what areas I will cut out. What I love to do is draw with a really sketchy style, then add more detail, but when I cut out I mix up the shapes and use both the sketchy lines and more precise lines to create the shapes.
The print below is an old one that I recut and printed again. I've made cushions a few times for Rose Street and this time thought I would just make some really simple ones with bold prints on them. The backing is a super soft fabric with a lovely folky pattern and Gareth just came in an asked if he could take it to be because the fabric is so soft.
