One thing leads to ...


I am making books for the Dublin Zine Fair which will be held in the middle of August in the Chocolate Factory (oh yeah!).  So anyway, I made some books of monoprints and before sewing them up I scanned in some of the prints.  I was going through them today on the computer and started messing and these collages resulted - so that's print - book - scan - collage - ... ?

Dynamic Monochrome

I have a new camera that offers creative settings for photos, in order, I suppose, so that you don't have to go all Photoshop on them.  Some of the settings are quite nasty - 'retro' and 'expressive' in particular do terrible things to your photos but the dynamic monochrome is quite something if you get the right set up.  All of a sudden the kitchen counter is transformed from beige to seedy.

She said that going to art galleries helps climate change by getting you off the treadmill.  It's true.
