Last weekend I went to the Spring Fair, which is a massive buying exhibition held at the NEC Birmingham, covering gifts, greetings, home – frankly everything. I came away inspired to produce my own range of mugs, jugs and pepper pots. As you pay per colour for printing, I thought I would do some black and white designs with spot colour. The trouble is I got carried away.
Here’s the first piece – just looking at how Indian ink behaves and what effects I could get. So far, so good… Decided it had potential, but then ended up painting two huge cows on canvas (both 90x90cm).
So, no nearer sorting out the jugs, but I do like my cows!
