Making marks in an etching plate was the challenge for the second lesson in Graphics. It was remarkable easy. The acid bath did the hard work. Next time I try a serious drawing.

Quilt collage

Some time ago I felt the urge to make a collage without too much thinking. So I grabbed pieces that were lying nearby and sewed them together. But in the end there was, again, a story. In my head.

Stencil project

Kind of crazy stencilling on paper to make a folder for a friend. Afterwards I rubbed the paper with furniture polish.

Graphics course

This summer I started with a short course Graphics. It's meant to make me acquainted with all kinds of Graphic Arts, such as drypoint, etching and monoprinting (although I do that already, e.g. with a gelatine plate). Above is an example of dry needle etching in cardboard (actually a lid of a cardboard box containing drinking glasses) that I did the first lesson. It was fun to slightly alter each pass.

Lino cutting altered

I cut away most of the previous green coloured lino to make it more interesting.

Teaservice collage

A while back I made this cover for a friend's birthday. Inside are pages with High Tea recipes (done by me and other friends).
