I had great fun designing my screenprint at the Blueberry Park workshop I did a couple of weeks ago, and it pushed me out of my gocco comfort zone which uses my detailed illustrations and fine line sketches, and made me simplify my ideas. This led on to me creating a pattern with birdhouses and silhouettes, and I am intrigued by how strong block colour can be. Of course that is a clue as to why I chose Short Cuts Laser as today’s Tuesday Talent:

1. It’s great how a silhouette can become so recognisable without any detail, and I think that makes these shapes even more striking

2. You are bound to find something that makes you smile, and I need that this week, from pineapples to rabbits, to stars, and they are perfect for any age or gender

3. I love the bold colours, and these are bound to grab attention wherever they go

So, on that note I will go and doodle some outlines of my fave silhouettes to turn into screenprints whilst I wait for my mum at physio. Have a good day

Xx
