New Year Map Murmuration

Starting the creative new year with printmaking experiments. Developing on, from the schooling hammerhead shark and starling prints that I have been working on over Christmas in Norfolk, I have moved onto a larger scale. I have now returned to Somerset and clasping handfuls of old maps stored in my sheds, beneath the evening sky filled with the very birds I am trying to capture, I have started  using the linocuts and stamps to develop larger works and am pleased with the progress. It's invigorating to work in media that I haven't explored for a long time and I am keen to bring more print work into my illustration, much planned for 2015.
