A Sketch A Day! Octobers best bits..

Best of Octobers Sketches

Here are a few of the better sketches that I did during october, for the challenge I set myself, randomly, of doing the Sketch a day for a year. I Hope that this will improve my drawing skills and just keep me in the habit of making things and sketching .

I also hope to post at least once a month on here, of my best ones, but I will be posting everyday ( most of the time) on instagram. It is a good motovational tool to help me complete my sketch a day!

If you would like to follow me on there to see everydays attempts, just search alisonsloggett!

Thanks for looking!

Apologies for the quality of the photos, but was against the clock a bit to finish these all for them to go off to be displayed / sold ( hopefully) at BABE book Fair, taking place in Bristol , this Saturday and Sunday.

If you love hand made books and quirky unique publications then this is the place to go for a bit of retail therapy!

The photos above are a bit random, I will gather some better ones, in more detail, asap and pop them on here under the making section.

Thanks for Looking!

Sunday afternooning

DSCF2955
Screen Printing on Fabric, and mono printing using a small etching press
DSCF2960
Simple Screen printing using paper stencil to make a repeat pattern
DSCF2956
Used wiping, cotton buds, and plant material, and taking a second print so sometimes got a positive and negative, when using things like plant bits.

 

I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !

Christmas Gift Fair

Great oak hall

Had a great opportunity recently to take part with some other lovely exhibitors from the Bristol area in a fair at Westonbirt Arboretum , in the lovely Oak Hall there, we ( me and Elaine Knight on our table)  had our stall selling prints and framed work and when the sunshine came out so did the people to buy things!

I hope to soon put some of the Prints and Photos I was selling here, on my etsy shop!

i have said it out loud, so I shall have to do it now!

Art Car Boot Sale 19th July

I am taking part in an Art car boot sale , at Old Sodbury near Bristol, on the 19th of  July from 10.30.

It will be the same set up as a normal car boot, but with all the stall holders being artists and sellers of art, and the emphasis being on grabbing a bargain!

So if you are in the area come along and have a rummage through our boots!
