Having had a digital morning preparing the texts of the haikus for laser etching using Illustrator, I have spent the afternoon playing around digitally with the sketchbook prints - perhaps for future production as screen prints or to be printed out as digital prints. Colour at last!
Otherwise I'm becoming fainthearted...the actuality of producing the boards and the supports for the haikus is taxing my limited woodworking skills. As I try to be a sustainable artist I sourced the wood for these from the Bristol Woodstore - it has come as waste from building and demolition sites in the local area. Sourcing sustainable wood varnish (to protect it) is currently being researched by the Natural Paint Store.
