My Creative Space today

I am taking part in Koo’s My Creative Space  meme again this week and, as per the game plan, I have hidden a heart somewhere on my desk. For easier heart-hunting you can click on the photo for a bigger image.  

My creative space is getting tidier this week. I have to clear the decks for a onslaught of gocco printing and bunny sewing. 


Here’s my Paper Moon illustration, slightly changed to satisfy my inner (and outer!) critics. I am working on rescanning and making colour seperations this week, ready for printing up next week. Fun! 

More creative spaces (with hidden hearts) at kootoyoo.

    Hi, I really like your work and hope that this interests you and your readers.I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein’s Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

    I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

    I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

    If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

    A Patchwork Of Flesh45 Silversea DriveWestcliff on SeaEssexSS0 9XDUnited Kingdom

    Each card I receive will be uploaded at to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

    I LOVE this illustrations. It belongs in a delicate, beautiful children’s book. I don’t have kids, but your site and art inspire me. Happy day!
