CONTINUING TO COLLAGRAPH

It has been a long and enjoyable summer break, but now it is back to work for me.

After a break, even a short one, I face my sketch book with a feeling of panic. But after a days intensive drawing and 3 days plate making and printing these 4 chicken collagraphs
are the result. The plates are made from card and woodglue.
They each measure about 7cms x 11cms.
Hopefully this will make them a set.
Still lurking in my sketch book are these 2 drawings.
Both additions to my ugly bird series. It is so good to get back to work, the more you do the more you feel like doing...don't you think?
Let me introduce you to Iris(on the left) and Henry, they have come to live with us from the Hampen Factory litter I posted about weeks ago. They have been with us for 2 days now and are settling in beautifully.

Kittens! Kittens! Can't wait to meet them. Oh and the chickens are pretty cool too! I think the Guinea Fowl will work really well but that is an ugly turkey! xxx

Hi Sue,
Wonderful to see what you do with wood glue and card!!! The detail in these collagraphs is so intricate. I love this series...these birds have character!

Iris & Henry look like two happy and loved kitties to me :)
