I’ve enjoyed the image I’m working on today so much that I thought I’d set myself another monthly project based on it.

FEB-SQUARE

This is a Christmas card design but it’s been planned with screen printing in mind so I have tried to keep it very simple.

I thought this could be a good way to set restrictions for designing a series of images:

4 colours only

Square format

irregular outline

FEB-SQUARE-DETAIL2

So although these will be the same months of the year theme as last year, I will be approaching them in a different way and their style will be influenced by the screenprint process itself.

Ultimately they will culminate in 12 screen prints, each limited editions.

So I am starting off with this breezy blackbird for ‘February’, it’s blowing a gale out there today and snow clouds keep looming on the horizon (not much white stuff so far).
