At last I have managed to snap some good pictures of The Lost Sock, which has been my main project for this year. It’s a wordless picture book that follows two forest inhabitants on their quest to find a missing sock. Because there are no words, I used cutouts to pull the reader forwards through the story. All cut, bound and embroidered by hand!
I’m making some beetles! This handsome stagbeetle is ready to be assembled. He and some of his pals will be looking for a new home at the Edinburgh College of Art Degree Show. Come and say hello to him and me between 1 - 9 June on the 4th Floor of Evolution house on the corner of Westport and Lady Lawson Street.
Some more college work. Did you get yourself a copy of “Wildwood" by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis yet? If you have, you might recognise Prue and Curtis. Here they’re setting off into the Impassable Wilderness.
A paper cut I made for a college project. The task itself is a bit difficult to explain, but the end product is a series of four A3 pieces in landscape format with some text.
Now I better try and get some Christmas Spirit! It’s about time really.
"So you think this is illustration?"
Some paper moths I made last year.
Made with paper and glue, a scalpel, thread, and a red jumper.
