I am so pleased I managed to get some of the women's "digital" range of t-shirts screen printed today.
I chose very muted colours, as monochrome suits the style of the motifs. I feel that these samples were successful, so now I can start to build up the range of the limited edition designs.
I have been working on the other two themes for the motifs, mechanical and medical, they are taking longer to develop than the digital design, but I put that down to practice and knowledge of the drawing subject.
I like to learn my subject, like a visual language, I practice drawing each component so many times that i can start to draw from memory accurately to form complex designs and surface patterns.
I am so excited to see what they all look like together, when they are all complete.

ok, so I might have got fed up with drawing peoples "stuff", now I have moved onto the idea of urban detritus.
People waste and dispose of so much stuff everyday, and it made me think, we take technology for granted, we don't realize the immediate effects its enhancement has on the world.
landfill sites and nature are being filled with waste, not only is this an eyesore, but a damage to the environment. We need to start thinking forward and produce new technology to limit this problem. e.g. the multi-phone charger concept.
I want to look at digital waste, thousands of usb and flash drives filled with information are lost, tangles of phone leads and computer cables create huge knotted masses and millions of mobile phone components break everyday.
My intention is to find beauty in these waste objects. re-invent them, give then new life as something decorative.
