My first Zine: front cover.

Out of nowhere, I was struck by the desire to publish a zine: An illustrated world inhabited by the bizarre and curious folk who have been popping up amid my art journal doodles.

I spent the following weeks with these ideas marinading in my imagination, finally arriving at this:

100 days as dreamscapes

I love to mix my drawings and graphics in with my photography experiments … these are glimpses into the dream scape of my imagination.

In the digital re-imagining¬†of my art that I was telling you about yesterpost, I’m creating one of these collage postcards series entirely from the images in the 100 day project¬†from earlier this year.

I’m finding the journey of¬†a creative practice follows a spiral path, revisiting and reinventing along the way, enriching and inspiring from the past into the future.

These drawings nestle up together in their new arrangements as one edge blends into another.

They contain hidden messages and fragments of found poetry from the words and phrases that wandered through my mind as I drew.

I was so pleased with the way these designs came out I had some printed up as postcards.

They are gorgeous!

reinvention

My first lesson in silk screen printing at college (a few years ago now) had us making  monochrome collages to transfer to screens.

I recently updated my fav image I made for this project, and even after all this time, I love it still.¬†This was one of those precious¬†times¬†when¬†the muse was with me and together we generated something I really don’t tire of looking at.

If you read my post on digital editing¬†you’ll recognise it as the image I used to demonstrate the technique.

Here it is full size.counterbalance_penngregory_s

If you love it like I do you might be interested to know you can get a print here, or find it printed on a T-shirt, or a cushion, or a bunch of other stuff
