Hello...it's been a while

Two of my cards just got featured in this fun treasury list on etsy. Appropriate theme for someone who's neglected their blog for a whole week don't you think?

Painting with light

Ok, so back in my uni days I did a bit of 'painting with light'. Essentially you use the B button on your camera at night and then use a torch, sparkler or globe to draw an image. I've always loved the idea, but of course, never pushed it very far in my endeavours. Then I stumbled across this amazing work by German group lichtfaktor and realised this artform now has a name: light graffiti (the kind that won't get you arrested!).

I love the idea of jellyfish floating through an industrial zone

Happy father's day

I'm not one for big, commercial showings of love... but I do like to acknowledge days like father's day with something thoughtful. This amazing pen drawing was done by my dad, maybe seven years ago. His skill and attention to detail was amazing and I only wish I'd inherited more of it. I look at this drawing everyday in my study and think of all my dad gave me, both inherited and taught, and think myself lucky to have had him in my life. And, yes, I told him that every day.
