Finally, I have submitted all the images for my new book about Heron today! I've done it!
For the last few weeks I was stuck at home and printing from morning till midnight.
So now I feel like the spring has come.
This Heron in a strong spring wind is from the nearby wash.
I thought I ought to celebrate the day I sent off my Heron yet I didn't want to do any more carving or printing so I went for painting the heron I saw earlier this month.
The book will be out in autumn this year!
I made the illustration in mixture of linocut, vinyl engraving, stencil and rubber stamps. Looking back this advertising image, the Heron, the fish and the colour, all changed a bit!
