Back to basics

I’ve had a quiet period where I haven’t been so productive lately. When I need to get back on the horse I draw. Most of the time this breaks the hiatus and I pick up the making too.

The drawing below is a work in progress in my favourite felt pen. It’s a collab by me and the bairn.

I’m doing colour studies for another colab involving resin shape by a friend of mine. The shapes are fire red and gold so I’m thinking turquoise and purple.

Gyre Bracelet

Gyres are circular ocean currents driven by the earths wind patterns. Within gyres rafts of detritus form which are conveyed by gyres around the worlds oceans. There is so much plastic in the oceans that I imagine gyres, which used to gather timber and seaweed, are now predominantly gathering industrial plastics. Nets, bouys, rope and other jetsum, a riot of high visibility colours creating something darkly beautiful.
