It is liberating to create images for different reasons. While working on the fish commission I am also working up some images in my sketch book for a series of Corvid collagraphs, just to experiment really.
I have used The Raven as a starting point, or should I say an excuse. The use of everyday objects in the work of the artist Jim Dine fascinates me, so with the two influences colliding and lots of textured wall paper I have made these two drawings. The next stage is to make the collagraph plates.

These are wonderful. I've only made very basic collagraphs, so I'm intrigued to see how you convert these complex drawings into plates.

I recognise that moth! The second one is my favourite and I can't wait to see it worked up into a plate. Look forward to seeing it evolve.Lesley x

Hi Sue

Is Corvid a particular approach to printmaking ?

also cant wait to see them..... off now to the print workshop to do some monoprint backgrounds with extender and oil bars or paintsticks.
