The Print Exchange 2013

These mono prints are my entry into The Print Exchange 2013. The theme open for interpretation is ‘The Drive Home’. I chose to convey tiredness when driving through the night and how your mind conjures up the most surreal ideas.

The whole point of the exchange is to create a series of 12 prints, 10 will go to another unknown print artist who has entered the exchange. One will be archived at the Brooklyn Art Library and another will be entered for an exhibition taking place in New York. Its put together by the amazing people of TheSketchbookproject.com and just seemed like another fantastic opportunity to get my work out there and noticed. Im really looking forward to seeing which prints I receive.

Being a new artist I really love these projects, their not paid work however it is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and for them to see your work. Ive had quite a few people recently complain about the fact this isn’t paid and why aren’t I concentrating and getting work that does pay. The simple answer is that I really enjoy taking part in these projects and the first bit of advice given to us by our lecturers in art school was that sometimes doing work for free in the beginning of your career can end up being far more rewarding. Creatively and monetarily.

The Sketchbook Project ’13

I enjoyed taking part in The Sketchbook Project ’12 so much that I have entered again for the 2013 tour. Here are some photos of my cover. As for the theme, im at a bit of a loss so if you have any suggestions please leave a comment. I would actually be really grateful to read what your thoughts are on it. You can find the link on the side bar to the sketchbook I did for this years tour. Again, love to hear from you if you have a spare moment. Take care, X
