Postbox Fairy

(no subject)

I've decided to take part in naarmamo (a piece of art every day through August). (I'd encourage anyone else who fancies it to join it - it's very friendly and low-pressure :) )

I'm having a go at linocut prints; because it's a medium I haven't really explored before, and has a number of features that appeal to me (the change of approach needed to 'paint' with white on black rather than black on white, the texture and livelyness, the 'folk art/historical' feel (plus it's the medium I want to use for my bardcamp illustration, for those of you who know about that))

It feels good to be making art again.
