Turning Sketches into Prints

So it's 2018 and I've finally got my sketchbook out. I always loved keeping a sketchbook all throughout secondary school and university. I would usually have both a personal and work project book on the go at any one time. Whilst I was completing my art degree my sketchbooks merged a little and you'd find doodles and shopping lists on the same pages as serious design plans and experiments. A part of me lived in my sketchbooks but when I left education I put down the sketchbooks out of sheer exhaustion. But I've missed it. 

I'm definitely out of practice when it comes to drawing and painting. Things used to flow out of my hands without much thought that take a lot more coaxing now. I'm determined to get it back so my sketchbook is back in my handbag and at the ready.

Above are a few doodles in my sketchbook along with their screen film counterparts. There's something satisfying about translating a loose sketch into a repeatable print. These littl'uns will be gracing the fronts of some of my stationery items.

Anyone want me to add some to my etsy?

  1. Demurely dressed, her face covered in a veil, Negin Khapalwak, the first woman conductor of Afghanistan, with her baton, becomes a figure of protest and things beyond: she and her girls show us a way to survive the worst, to resist death through art, making it a statement of human idealism against the irredeemable reality of catastrophe which too, is man-made. Art, in this context, transcends its aesthetic function and becomes a moral act. An act coterminous with life itself in its race against death.
