Three Foxes at the Disco, they are ready for a great night out dancing!
It's nearly December which is definitely party season - and great to have a bit of shimmer to brighten up the Autumn gloom...
I had a stand at Leeds Print Fair for the first time this month and it was really fab. Very busy and lots of interest in my lino prints which was great - also time for an amazing pizza, a French film at the lovely Hyde Park Picture House and a pit stop in a great house filled with amazing children's art...yeah!
Due to having a long list of other things to do I have managed to get quite a few new lino prints started this month...the other things can go away :)
This one is now proofed and ready to go - I've called it 'Everybody at the table' and especially enjoyed cutting out tiny little guinea pigs. We don't always keep ours on the table.
So good to be printing on a sunshine day - and it makes the gold ink on these little Bristol notebooks look really fab too! Having a busy week stocking up for art trails, print fairs and topping up stock at some of my lovely galleries...
This time last year I was printing madly ready to spend two weeks my own pop-up shop in the middle of Bristol. It was so much fun having it and great to be able to have so many products in one place.
Also great was having a huge flock of laser cut birds from my lino print hanging in the window...
The shop was organised by the fab Etsy in Bristol team - how lucky was I!
I have spent most of the month trying to re-organise my studio space too, whilst working on prints at the same time. That hasn't gone well, I've moved things around countless times but the piles of books, paper, supplies, dull paperwork, sketchbooks etc haven't diminished in size. I know it will all fit into the little space in a sensible way, so more effort needed! That's so hard in the summer...
I've listed a couple of new prints in the Etsy shop too, you might have seen them before, but this is the first time they can be on-line ordered, so hurrah :)
