Those little plastic fish with green screw tops

For some time now, I have been collecting those little plastic fish with green screw top lids.  Somehow, I just can't throw them away, because they look....well....nice and as if they have been designed and therefore, they are not for the bin!  They are on my print tray, collecting shelf, and the photos are on this blog.  I thought I might try drawing them.  So this is what I have been doing for the last couple of weeks. Doing a monoprinting workshop at the Garden Museum in Lambeth, made me think about my practice.  I have been monoprinting in a different style eversince.  This particular print looks very different from my usual practice.  It has been quite liberating to use the inks in a different way.  I have worked this way before, but not for a long time. Long may it continue!

  2. give them to me, or they will disappear into the sea and be swallowed by turtles or albatross.
