Since it has been a while since I last wrote an entry here I thought it was about time to do so again.
Well, what's new?
I cought a cold and I cannot remember the last time I was laid up with an illness this bad. This was two weeks ago and together with my health my creativity recovered slowly. I tried out my linoleum I brought with me from good old Germany. I think the last linocut I did was in school quite some time ago. It was harder than I remembered but (as often happens) I was inspired by s beautiful cut she did with the tools she actually borrowed from me. [link] So I figured it was about time I have to start using them again as well. The first cut was not satisfying and I got some blisters as well >.<" But the second one is quite ok. [link] Now I bought some soft transparent lino plates and I'm planning on doing a two layered portrait printing with it. (I know, it's a big project for such an lino-amateur like me, but you have to dream big to become and be big ^_^")
Furthermore, there are some unfinished projects in the hold such as: Another fairytale illustration, an idea for a mixed stitching and drawing piece, a scrap board piece, a leporello fairytale illustration (I can't decide which one I want to do...^^"), another postcard and finally some more leafcuts (but I have to wait for some bigger leafs on the trees...). Oh, and I also have some clay lying around and waiting to be used, an unfinished acryl painting and a story I have to finish writing and illustrate...
I don't know when I have time to do all of these...
A very welcome interference with those plans are some new commissions I got in and an offer to do a job as a quick portrait drawer at a local summer festival (and I have to practisssssse!!!!!).
So as always: so many ideas, so little time!
I hope you'll enjoy my finished works ^o^
