Last night I FINALLY found the set of lithograph prints I did at Easter this year. I have been searching for these for months, and had finally given up hope and assumed they had accidentally been chucked in the skip during one of my many studio clear outs last semester. The loss of these prints was frustrating because it meant I couldn't complete something I had high hopes for. Well, at last they have turned up hidden away "safely" inside a Jessops photo envelope and I can finally get on with my original plan.

Looking at them again after several months tucked away, I am still happy with them. Im glad I chose to print them onto newsprint. The faded, and contrasty images are perfect for what im trying to achieve.

Ive also had a little bit of a rethink about them, and so far Ive added some text using the lovely pink gloss paint that I have become obsessed with the past week or so, and as soon as I get a nice dry day I can get on with the second part of the plan (fingers crossed for tomorrow).

Matchbox camera

Its been a VERY long time since I made a pinhole camera. Found a great little tutorial online for a simple 35mm camera made from a matchbox, so I spent a rainy afternoon building my first pinhole in quite a while.

So far its looking pretty good, and I got out and about shooting with it this evening. I will put it in for processing tomorrow, and fingers crossed I will have some interesting results.


Back from the brink.

Bloggin again.

Life is good.

Self Portrait

Something I was working on at the end of last semester, and one of my personal favourites.. No photoshopping involved, which seems to surprise people. More like this coming soon!
