Illo perennial


daisyfox, originally uploaded by Champignons.

I haven't blogged in ages and I mean to because I have done lots of interesting (so I think) work and have some stuff to say.. but I never seem to have the time. And what I mean tby that is when I have some free time I seem to spend it all at happyplace.com looking at ridiculous signs and rude speling mistakes children have inadvertently made. That sort of thing.


Anyway, this is a print I did to experiment with halftone. It's got some pretty crazy moire effects in it which I quite like. I didn't print many of them but now I quite like it. The very original drawing was different, and was misinterpreted a lot, so I didn't want to go down that route which left me unsure who I wanted underground dreaming the daisies.

My original spirit of the daisies was a little seedperson, but I didn't print him in end. I ended up having a crazy week seeing foxes everywhere- real ones, in the city, in the daylight.. so I made up a rubber stamp of a fox to complete my print.

It's actually quite hard to make a workable image of a sleeping fox in one colour, I hope you appreciate that ;)

I just discovered your work, and really enjoy it. Your fox reminds me of one i did for illustration friday's "asleep". Have a good week end !

I think your fox is totally successful. I am enchanted by the background to your graphic; that magical dark world. Good stuff.
