pencil rough...

...i have nothing to show for today's efforts as it has been a day of little panic. i am sure i will find what i am looking for on Monday so i am going to stay positive. i have some photocopies of my work so i think i can work on somethings till then. i have been re-reading research and brainstorming my last two thousand words or so of the dissertation. so tomorrow is a day of hunting down some acrylic spray for the ceramic ideas and a day of typing up of many words. i have decided to post up a rough of a double page spread that i quite like that has come from the pages i have been doodling. i am planning to take this one to the print room this week to see how it and other bits of the book may look. i have not really done a lot of 'text-typography' screen printing so i think a couple of days experimenting with it and colours are in order. the colour index book by jim krause is fab for ideas and colour combinations so it is just a case of colour mixing in the print room to get them to kind of match up.
where is the sunshine...

...so we can go to ice cream vans in the park? just a doodle i am incorporating into my next hand painted screen experiment thing. i have been working on some pages of the 'book'. it is more like a series of illustrations that could be a book if they wanted to be. the word book is in them comma things as with regards to everything-the dissertation-what i what to do-what i am trying to do-children's picture books and that, i have come to the conclusion that a story can be told without being bound into a book. the dissertation is getting there now and the end is in sight. i quite enjoy writing it. its just the typed words on paper bit and sentences that i am not too good with. the other week it was all very blurry but now with help and directions i have found a path. its a wobbly path at the moment but i am happy to be on that path. the scanner is not hocked up so i will have to post some images up later today.
