I haven't quite finished with the report illustrations yet, and following the demise of the Kingfisher print I need to come up with a new cover design. So Christmas could be a bit busy this year as I promised they would be ready for the first week in January! However, on the basis that a change is as good as a rest, the illustrations have been temporarily put to one side and a new print started. The third of the trilogy of prints that I intend submitting to the Ferens Open Exhibition in the New Year. Even at this early stage the subject matter is already becoming apparent with this print.
I also need to spend some time this week preparing work for the forthcoming Ilkley Arts Market. Prints have to be mounted, cards printed and ex-libris bookplates trimed to size and packaged. Its important work and needs to be done but I always feel guilty spending time doing this rather than producing work.
