Drawing and Print

Drawing and print have always been core in my work - find the relationship between the two really interesting - particularly the intimate, physical engagement between mark and surface.
Watched 'The Secret of Drawing' on BBC2 tonight. Good to see drawing becoming a focus of attention on mainstream t.v.

studio situation getting worse

The decision has been made - my old studio is to become our new bedroom. (after new roof, electrics, plumbing ...) which probably means it will be Christmas before our old bedroom becomes my new studio. When I was thinking of a name for this blog it wasn't intended to be taken literally! Lack of a studio isn't so much of a problem in terms of making as I can work elsewhere temporarily - it's more to do with the fact that all my books, materials etc. are piled in the front room and I find it really difficult to organise my thoughts in the middle of so much chaos. Have finished cutting a stencil though and started a pencil print.
Also did a test - 'flamenco stamp' for some new drawings I'm thinking about doing relating to gesture and mark.


For a while now I've been trying to keep a sketchbook on line with limited success. Thought a sketchblog might be the answer? As my studio currently looks like this this and I'm working in the basement, I may not have much to share for a while.
