Some time ago I made this monotype as part of a set of crow fable illustrations … The Swallow and the Crow had an argument one day about their plumage. Said the Swallow: “Just look at my bright and downy feathers. Your black stiff quills are not worth having. Why don’t you dress better? Show a little pride!” “Your feathers may do very well in spring,” replied the Crow, “but—I don’t remember ever having seen you around in winter, and that’s when I enjoy myself most.”

I need more Crow and Raven stories and characters to hold in the back of my mind while developing some more of these, any suggestions?. . . . . #linocut #printmaking #monotype #monoprint #lino #raven #cornwallart #artexhibition #artforsale #myth #folklore #folktale #fairytale #ravenart #illustration #contemporaryprintmaking #humananimalrelationship #ukprintmakers #get_imprinted #contemporaryprintmaking #printmakingtoday #creativeinspiration #darkart

Still enjoying playing with ideas around these monoprint/linocuts I like that this one may also speak of a need for balance or a fragile and precarious state ….. . . . ………..#linocut #printmaking #monotype #monoprint #lino #raven #cornwallart #artexhibition #artforsale #cornwallwildlife #wildlifeart #birdart #birdartist  #art #illustration #contemporaryprintmaking #humananimalrelationship #ukprintmakers #get_imprinted #contemporaryprintmaking #printmakingtoday

I saw this and felt inspired so I ordered mine straight away…cant wait to see it #Repost @alisonbickdesigns (@get_repost) ・・・ Are you a designer/maker trying to build a business out of doing something that you love? Then I highly recommend that you get the Dream Plan Do 2019 journal from @thedesigntrust It will help you track your business over the course of a year, with monthly themes and juicy goals to achieve. It’s bumper packed full of useful business advice completely tailored to the creative industries. Sometimes it’s hard to get going, to feel motivated or keep in track, or it just feels too scary to just do it? right? So I’m going to be part of the new monthly Dream Plan Do Accountability groups in the Uk, here in Cornwall, where local Dream Plan Do’ers will get together each month and help, support and encourage each other through the themes. If you have bought a 2019 Dream Plan Do and live in Cornwall and fancy being part of my group then get in touch.. In the meantime you can currently pre-order Dream Plan Do on The Design Trust’s website, and there is a lot more info on there about what you can expect in the 2019 planner.
