New Ideas

I’ve started playing with ideas for a new book.

I started by thinking about simple folds, considering cloisters and frescos (and I will return to this later)
I’m not sure why, but this structure got me thinking about the work of Patrick Hughes. I wondered if I could translate the idea of playing with perspective and making the images appear to move at a smaller scale in book form.  

I tried a mock up and it seems to work
I’ve developed the drawing and done a tonal study at the right size.
I’m not sure if I want to work it up as painting and digitally print the image or if I want to etch it. The next step is to try etching a section before I make up my mind.


  1. What a fascinating thing to be working on Jac. You never take the easiest option with things! Etching versus digital seems like an easy choice for me. I think I'd go for the one taking less time but I suspect you will love the etching and take the route that will give you the desired effect.

    1. I've tried the small etching and it seems to have worked so I'm going to try the larger plate. If I can't make it work at this scale I can always go the digital route
