when i wasn't thinking...
...my brain actually works in a funny unconnected way with my drawing hand. this illustration was created one day at uni when i wasn't thinking about anything and it turned out quite good. i doodled with some drawing ink and a brush and some coloured pencil crayons. i am still working on the dummy books at the moment as i am changing the size of it all. please click on the image to see it in a zoomed in close fashion.
edited to answer a question from Catherine. photo etching is like a cross between etching and screen printing. that is the best way for me to explain it without me rambling on. it is where an image is etched into the polymer photo film layer that is stuck onto a metal plate.

first sentence...
...here is the first sentence from the one hundred word story that i have wrote about a robotington. this was printed out using the metal type letter things that are in the print room. i rolled out some lino printing paint and did each letter individually. some of the letters i reprinted, 'my' and the letter 'm' as they came out bit messy. they used to live in the graphics room but over summer have been put in the print room at uni. there is a big letterpress machine so you can print out blocks of text all in one go but i don't know how to operate it.
