Bee layer three

The third layer. I won’t bore you with the long list of reasons it took me so long to get started on this; it is an extremely long list! Slowly coming together.


Finally some printing

On Sunday I finally found the time to start printing a bee!

The first cuts into the lino.


The first print.

The first layer always looks very strange, lots of random lines and voids. But I promise there is method to the madness and the lines are not random at all. Only 8-10 layers to go.

Still buzzing

Images don’t always work out as they are supposed to. Still thinking about bees, my latest sketch is a bee on a hive. It has some good points, but as you can see the bee is a little lost. In hindsight, I should have sketched this in colour, with black, brown and yellow layers to help separate the bee from the honey comb background. It has potential though.
