Welcome to my new website! Sorry for the downtime, even though it was only a few hours…
I’m in the very slow and painful stage of migrating my old blog across to here (you may notice it hasn’t even started yet) so you can still access it there – bethjosey.blogspot.com.
Hopefully I’ll be adding a few new posts about my upcoming shows too…
I have started the process of cutting and printing as I go for my “Lights Off” show at Hardware Gallery.
So far I have printed editions of 5 of my blocks. They’re looking pretty good, and I’m over the 1/4 mark… I guess that’s some kind of milestone.
I’ve got a bunch more ideas, and have started cutting out some of the sketches I’ve done.
It’s frightening how productive I’ve become with these, I really thought I’d be hitting the wall by now desperate for inspiration… but nay… not yet anyway.
I’m using a japanese woodblock printing tool (which for the life of me I can’t remeber what it’s called!). It’s a round pad wrapped in a dries leaf and it is my new love. Hand printing these lino cuts is so much easier, wooden spoons mean nothing to me now.
