Experiments in ink

I’ve been having a lot of fun with ink recently, and have been trying to make inky, cloudy textures for collage. However, I became so enamoured of some of my ink blobs that I’ve been experimenting with adding lettering over the top. These have gone down very well at recent markets and I’ll soon be turning my favourites into prints. This foray into the more graphic arts has meant I can create some slightly more grown up work, although the downside is that I want to keep many of them for myself. Here is one of my faves, a bit tongue in cheek and literary to boot.
