that he did...

...beware the robber bird as he is running wild. andy and i saw him in the park on wednesday but we were too tired from sitting in the sun and drawing to run after him. this is just a quick lino print i did the other day. i was inpsired by a fine artist who has been working in the print room printing lino and words. i forget the lady's name now. maybe the robber bird stole it. i quite like the quickness of lino but i dont like the printing process of lino much.

from a doodle...

...a bird was stitched this evening out of some dotty fabric to make sure the idea of the curly tail would work. i am planning to made some adjustments to the design. the tail bit works but i know it could work better if i played around with the sewing machine and fabric more. the bird has some string legs so i can attach it to places like the teapot handle for example. i doodled loads of birds today and i am planning to make some more up when i am happy with my fabric designs.
