The May edition of The Word Magazine is out at the moment with a lovely picture of the Decemberists which I took at their Birmingham Institute gig back in March. If you don’t know them, have a listen to their latest album ‘The King is Dead’. if you like a bit of Americana, folk with early REM then give them a listen.
This afternoon I’ve been over at Oxford Printmakers just off the Cowley Road. Been doing some lino prints on a 130 year old printing press which haven’t come out too badly! Going to go back next week to do some more, its quite addictive!
I’ve been working on this rough sketch this evening as a t-shirt idea for Wychwood Festival. I think it would be printed as a one colour print, if we choose the colour of print well, we could make the colour of the t-shirt the 2nd colour. I want to add some octopus tentacles to it, not sure why….it just feels like it could do with some! I wanted to get across how much goes on at this festival alongside the music which I hope this design does in some way. Currently listening to The Holloways ‘generator’ with a glass of red wine!
