I've been doing some more screen printing recently and here's a three colour print I did yesterday.
I wanted to illustrate this Finnish song called "Polkupyörä"(Bicycle), which I loved to sing when I was little.

the journey is like a dance.

there's not a cloud in the sky.
Interpretation // Varoom! Lab & Arts University Bournemouth Illustration Symposium
This symposium seeks to explore ways in which illustrators, interpret, re-interpret and misinterpret information through illustration practice. This event aims to celebrate and investigate the potential exciting creative strategies and possibilities for practitioners to move minds, challenge norms and influence the ways in which we the see the world and connect with it.
I made some felt brooches based on some sketches I had done. I cut out the pieces, stitched the faces on before stitching around the edges, then left a little gap to stuff the little brooches with some cotton wool, and then finished off the stitching to seal the edge. On the back of the brooch I've sewn a bar pin. So much fun to make these!
