Photos...

Alright, so it's not strictly illustration, but I couldn't resist!
A few days ago I found an old disposable camera lurking in the bottom of a drawer. Out of curiosity, I took it to town to be developed, and the result was some lovely little photos of a holiday in Crete, probably taken about 6 years ago. I love the grainy quality to them, which you don't get with digital photography, and the fact that looking through them was like traveling back through time.
Here's a few below.

Potaaato potato potato...


I've moved on a little with the potato printing, trying to apply it to some little pencil drawings.
I like how these have turned out, particularly the first one- I think the texture's pretty cool.
I've used watercolours to print with (I know, I know!) but I like the subtlety of the colour, which was difficult to achieve when I was using acrylics. 
I'm now trying to come up with a context in which to use some of these little prints. The messiness that comes from the process makes the characters look innocent, scruffy, a bit like young teenagers? I might try and use that.
Hmm, I've got some thinking to do.
