canvas printses

I don't consider myself to be a 'proper' artist by any means (what does that mean these days, anyway?) but I thought it'd be nice to get some of my recent drawins printed onto canvas at good old imagescience and see how they go in my etsy shop. I just love the way things look printed onto that canvas:









Hmm, I don't know what i'll do with them if they don't sell - it'd feel wrong to have them up on my own wall, and weird to give them to friends unless someone asked for one specifically. Anyway, just rambling now - we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!!

Meanwhile, I went to mum and dad's last week and collected all my old screenprinting stuff out of the garage - most of it guiltily unopened and unused - screens, emulsion, ink, squeegees. Hoping to have a screenprinting day sometime soon (maybe with miss wendy if she's keen) and make some of that patterned fabric myself. Geez I've been talking about that for ages, I just need to go and do it!

I like them all! Your prints are lovely and don't bother yourself too much on a definition of what an artist is supposed to be. You're better off dreaming of more lovely stuff to make and draw!

Your prints look really great on canvas. I would love to see some of your screen printing. I also have a garage full of screens which need to be stripped and inks drying up from a tafe course I did a while back - we even have an open access screen printing studio in Canberra at Megalo so I have no excuse not to get out and do it.

Hey Lara
Thanks for letting me know about the store. My blog has really fallen over! I am in the middle of designing a new one which I hope will be much better and I am having so much fun just drawing and doing other bits and pieces at the moment. I love checking in with your blog though - it gives me a fresh burst of inspiration every time! I'll let you know when the new blog is up and running!
Cheers
Kara
