A New Year
The first blog for 2018 and hopefully another creative and fun-filled year. I hope my regular followers stick with me for my ride and share some of their thoughts again as usual. I know I should have chosen a dog for the Chinese but ended up with a pig (an earth pig)for 2019 instead. I'm a year early. The pig is the last of the animals in the Chinese zodiac and then we go back to the beginning again.
I have been working on some other artist books for various exhibitions but they are still works in progress. I will blog about these as they are completed.
I always like to make a few light-hearted zines to get my imagination back to the right side of the brain (or is it left?). The images for this one came from my mother's old cookery book, a Japanese comic, old newspaper ads, a ration ticket, maps, tickets and stamps amongst other things. You need to make your own connections. As usual, if you are interested I can send you a jpg to print or post you a real copy by mail if you send your details.
