mum's the word

The old floppy disc looks so long ago and I thought would make a great cover for a book that includes bits of very old brittle paper I have embedded in wax to protect them. "Mum's the word" is an old phrase for keeping quiet or secret information which suits my drawings and marks perfectly.

I am still using the same very restricted colour range as earlier drawings to link them to a series of little works. This is the first book for 2017 -the aim is to make one a month.

In case you have forgotten ever seeing the floppy discs, they are 13cms square so that will give you an idea of how small these little secret messages are.

Another great little book, the blue and red palette seems to be working really well for you. Love the use of the floppy disk - you're a master at recycling interesting things Jack.

Thanks Helen,I do like recycling things, sometimes even old drawings and prints.
