Arting About

Visible to anyone in the world

I'm at at again. My late Mum taught me at home and I took an A' Level in Art age 17 before the 'usual' three A' Levels the following year. 

At the School of Communication Arts, London I went from copywriter to art director to possible illustrator in two terms - but did nothing with it.

Twenty years ago my mum was pointing me towards academics she know who taught art about taking an MA in Fine Art. I procrastinated, though I put a book together.

I settled into Life Drawing six years ago and printmaking this January.

Who knows what'll come of it. It keeps me out of trouble I suppose, though it is an expense to indulge: paper, inks, access to a press ...

Thanks for the comments!

I have struggled getting 'Markstakes Women' right, and then when I did I had dirt/grit on the roller so they all come out with marks on them (this was my hand printing at home practice run I suppose). I'll take the linocut to a print shop/class on Thursday.
