For this years Metric Collective Pop Up shop on Columbia Road I created two brand new digital prints.

AND HERE THEY ARE!:

I have named them Untitled Portal Blue & Untitled Portal Red – very creative, i know.

Both have a fish scale background, Red Snapper and Mackerel if you are interested. The symmetry is more complex then my pervious and contains of multiple layers.

Usually my circular print like this are more random, I never start out thinking what would be the centre and how it might look after i have mirrored it… this time however i had a plan. I wanted something that would look like a portal or a sphere when seen from afar, something a little more 3 dimensional. I went from dark to light, not just in colour but also in subject matter… slugs, bugs and worms in  the dark, and flowers and butterflies in the light. I might revers these one day, use some lovely white slugs etc.

Printed them on 20×30″, on lovely velvety photorag. It makes the backs look stunning.

Might post some details in the future.

The why? of the quiet.

Boy, oh boy, it sure has been quiet here for a while. For multiple reasons:

1: I went on holiday

2: Work got crazy (im talking 15h days 15 days straight crazy)

3: Work got normal, i needed a break.

4: I started working on something i still can’t share.

5: I started working on something im about to share (see below)

6: Some people had babies they need cards and stuff.

7: I cut my finger. See below below for graphic image (warning: graphic image)

New work for Metric summer pop up on Columbia Rd opening tomorrow! (more to follow)

I cut my finger at work and had to have 6 stitches and the nail taken off (its back on now, temporarily)

image

I’m thinking it should be in a new print.

Nail now black and red. Named it.Frankenfinger.

Here is another picture from the shop to help you get over the trauma of my finger.

Metric Summer Shop Update

 

 

 

The Metric Collective summer shop is up and running on Columbia Rd, but i have not written about it recently, or about anything at all for that matter. Been very busy, and a little bit lazy. First with the Olympics and now flat hunting.

So the shop is up and running, and will be there until Sunday the 2nd of September, so only one last weekend to see it!

Here are some photos of my work there, before the setup was finished!
