Hello! I have been busy working away on new pieces, applications for things and new projects in general. Last month, I got really into bookbinding after trying my hand at coptic binding. It is so relaxing, and I have made some book pieces I'm really proud of. The one bound in green thread is a luxurious sketchbook made of grey fabriano paper. Can't wait to do some drawing in it. The other two are books I designed as pieces for sale on Etsy- they are blank A5 notebooks with pastel coloured pages. :)
The coptic binding looks awesome but I do want to look into sewing some kind of cover in to protect the outside cover binding. perhaps a soft paper cover or something. If anyone knows a crisp way to do that, give me a shout!
I have also finished my second zine in the Everything I Know About... Series. This one is called Everything I Know About Dreams. I am really enjoying the series so far and am planning number three now. Just sent a bunch of them away to Zineswap, so if you're taking part you may well receive one! :D Can't wait to see what zines I get in my swap. Here's Dreams:
Dreams took a while, because I began work on it just before Christmas, which turned out to be insanely busy between all three of my jobs. This day job busyness took until now to die down... 2015 has been hectic indeed. During the midst of the January busyness, I was very kindly sent a pack of book works by Anatomic Air Press, including How to Sleep,an excellent zine with great tips on the art of sleeping. Was great to receive that when I was faltering with the production of my own sleep related zine! I totally recommend you check their work out.
Anyway, I am trying to update my blog much more regularly now I have a little more time. I have some new pieces to show you! :D
