I'm off to France in a couple of hours - Preston to Paris on the train. I'm taking the book Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury with me as my holiday reading, plus i'll try and collect dandelions for the the project while i'm there.

I've travelled around a bit the past few days - and the two leaves here are from Glasgow. I was there on saturday to do a talk at CCA Glasgow.

White on White

I went back to Artlab for the final time before the summer break (it's at Uni in Preston - the year runs from Sept - July). I was experimenting with printing white on white and black on black.

The prints have come out great and I really like the final results. Maybe i do like printing after all...*

The image here shows the screen made for the prints.

Timetable Prints

I finally got to go back to Artlab to collect my prints for the book i'm making. I cut my timetable up from my journey to Japan and printed the outlines of Japanese dandelion leaves that i collected while there on to each page. I'd used the book to press the collected leaves in and bring home too.

The timetable wasn't that helpful as it goes with every timetable i used slightly wrong by a few minutes...

I found this leaf at YSP on 23rd June on a hot sunny day. It's the first i've ever found with a deformity - two leaves coming from one. Wonderful.
