Seed Project 1992 - b&w drawings



I drew these while I was in Canada using photo's from my time at the herbarium in Edinburgh. The plan was to screenprint them. As I'd become very Eco I didn't want to photographically expose the screen because of nasty chemicals at various stages, so I drew them to work as stencils on the screen, hence the boldness (they are much crisper than they appear here).

I'd love to see these printed up. I Gocco'd them as Christmas cards but stupidly didn't keep any, not realising I'd never get round to printing them. Of course, it's not too late, they've waited 15yrs but they are miraculously still in good condition.

Thanks, I only found yours by accident because I pressed the wrong button, but I was pleased to find it when the page opened up.

These would make excellent woodcuts, although I can see it's very intricate. But then again, it's the most eco-friendly way! :)

I've missed you so much--I've been way too exhausted and busy to look at other people's blogs, just like you. I just want a mound of grass and a clear blue sky to look up at.
