Right now I am preparing for a big fair in September called Origin. I am at the early stages of making some new work. At this stage I tend to do a lot of drawing and redrawing of images until I am happy with them, the I start working with them to decide which maps I want to use and how they will work as finished pieces.
The beginning of the process goes something like this.
I first get my tools
Then I get my inspiration
I collect paper ephemera, and am always on the look out for images for use in my work.
I then trace and re-trace the drawings until I am happy.
Still working on the turtle.
Some Kingfishers nearly ready for the next stage.
I then go through my box full of maps to see which ones are inspiring me and then…
…I will post about the next stages as they happen
