Well that’s the idea once I get over this cold. It’s not too bad actually, and the last cold I had was about 4 years ago so I can’t complain.
So, I photographed some materials, new sketchbooks and so on, but haven’t moved forward beyond enjoying going through the fabrics and having a think; I imagine I will be continuing with a project I started last year based upon natural history collections, as well as making new work based upon pattern, for a show next summer.
I am hoping to use a fair amount of finished/almost finished work that wasn’t used in the projects it was originally destined for. I have lots of inspiring digital prints too.
I am also using these new Moleskine Japanese albums, below, as sketchpads, adding notes and collage as the new work unfolds. They are too lovely to use actually, but I have made myself start with the larger cream paper one, although the black one is the most exciting. I’ll post the result when I have convincingly filled a few more pages.
Until then, Happy New Year!
