Heyyy I finished my contribution to the Hotbed Press 20:20 print exchange 2014.
This year I did a hard ground etching with machine sewing over the top. It’s 20x20cm in size. It’s printed in black ink, sewn in red thread, on white paper. What what, you’d like some work in progress photos? Ok then:
It’s called Pretford Wives because I had a cuppa in Pret a Manger one lunchtime and thought I’d draw a cup or something, but oh no then I was horrified by how all the career girls looked all shiny and the same so I drew them on an etching plate instead.
Participating in last year’s print exchange was awesome. I contributed 25 etchings of this fella, called Can I Touch Your Beard?
5 of them now belong to print galleries and 20 of them now belong to other artists. In return I received a 20x20cm pizza box filled with 20 prints:
These two were my favourites:
So yeah. I like swapping and I like printing and I like pizza boxes. I have three 20x20cm proofs of Pretford Wives that I’ll gladly swap for any reasonable offer of a swap. I’ve done an edition of 10 of Pretford Wives on 8″x6.5″ paper for sale (9 left as of 29th August 2014, £25 including UK postage, international postage at cost price on top of that).
