Having checked on my last blogpost (posted via my phone) and found it works I am back to share today’s little creative project.

As you can see I had another quick go at creating a repeating stamp tile. My slapdash attitude to the corners clearly needs improving, but nothing a ruler and preplanning can’t fix (I hope).

The main motif (squiggly stuff in circle) is an small element from a gum nut drawing I did last week for ISCD homework.

It’s a little detour from other experiments this year, but I think it works?

The best part of today’s fun is of course I can file it under a few of my ongoing project e.g. #print52 #patternplay (general surface design studies) and my postcard designs.

If you haven’t been keeping up with me on Instagram, my postcard project is inspired by the wonderful designer Katsuji Wakisaka (Marimekko and Sou Sou) who created daily postcards (10,000 in total) for his wife.

My intention is not to match his number, but simply use postcard sized project to help explore new mediums and ideas.

Since June 2016 I have stamped, drawn, paper cut and slapped water colours and acrylics down on 149 postcards. I don’t do them everyday or every week, but when I have a free hour or so, or need a break from everything else.

Anyway, this is turning into a long micro blog, so have a great day!

Cheers H
