Wolf T Shirts for sale again!
November 15, 2012
Since having recently moved house I’ve found my last remaining 30 wolf t shirts. The design is screenprinted onto asphalt American Apparel t shirts. You can buy one on the website if you go to Projects and then T Shirts.
My aim is to sell them all before Christmas!
Someone has made a Peter Pan cake!
September 25, 2012
A friend saw this the other day on flickr and sent me the link… I love it! Someone has painstakingly recreated my Peter Pan wallpaper into edible 3D, painting and sculpting the scenes. I love the trees and the spooky little Wendy.
The cake was created by cake artist Nicola Shipley and you can follow her on twitter @fairycakesfaces
etchings – work in progress
January 21, 2010
This week i’ve been working on a couple of two-plate etchings… featuring more wolves and lighting fixtures… inspired by several fairytales – maybe The Tiger’s Bride? mostly, i’ve been experimenting with soft grounds and textures, washes and then drawing more detail into hard grounds and working out how long they need in the ferric chloride… it’s going to be a while before they’re finished so i thought i’d put a bit on here to show the development of an etching…

Went back to Venice this weekend and three things i really loved in the Biennale were Hans-Peter Feldmann’s Shadow Play, Nathalie Djurberg’s animation and the dimly lit floors of Palazzo Fortuny…

arts council, wolves & animation
October 27, 2009
I’m really delighted to have received funding from Arts Council England SW to develop my wallpaper and start to use digital media with my work. This means that this year i’ll be learning about animation and working on making a short film.
Catherine Cartwright (my friend and fellow printmaker who i share a studio with) and i are hoping to find a way of collaborating and creating a piece of work together using our printmaking and NEW animation skills!
Last week we ventured up to North Devon in the rain to draw and film these wet wolves. I wanted to work out how they move before attempting to animate them.
I made my first Lotte Rieniger inspired shadow puppet too.

i’ve also been in the workshop screenprinting work to exhibit in Present Makers – an exhibition of contemporary craft at Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton this November. These are images of screenprinted stories onto painted mdf with metallic relief prints on using wallpaper and Honiton lace.

today i’ve been in the workshop screenprinting five-colour babygros… they features little hummingbirds and are inspired by this passage in JM Barrie’s Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens…
‘All children could have such recollections if they would press their hands hard to their temples, for, having been birds before they were human, they are naturally a little wild during the first few weeks, and very itchy at the shoulders, where their wings used to be. So David tells me.’
