This collage has been created entirely from one page of a vintage magazine. I found this copy of Paris Match, from 1958 at Spitalfields Antique Market.
On Friday I went to the ‘drop in’ etching class at the Prince’s Drawing School in Shoreditch. A customer had ordered the full set of my seasonal ‘Tree’ etchings, so I had the pleasure of spending the day printing in the basement of Charlotte Road. I love the drawing school and I’ve been going there on and off since 2008. It’s always really nice to see what other people are working on, the artist Sam Marshall was printing there too, check out her work here.
It’s a real labour of love, especially if you’re a perfectionist like me! I’m pleased to say that I printed one of each season, and thought I’d share some photo’s of the process.
Oh my word, this challenge is harder than I thought! Day three, postcard number three, somehow I think the chances of creating ten is pretty slim. On this piece I kind of reverted to my default and made things tricky for myself. I’m pleased with the result but tomorrow I can’t take as much time.
So, I’ve st myself a challenge to create 10 original collages at postcard size by the end of this week. These will then be available for sale at £65 each on Friday. Please keep a look out at http://www.elphicksshop.com. This is the first, it kind of looks like a building but it’s actually a collage of book shelves taken from a 1963 publication called ‘The Art of Interior Decoration’ by Hachette.
