Any one reading this blog will know I love Lino printing and making hand-made sketch books.( among many other things).
I also love collecting a few things along my life journey that inspire me to create.( mainly nick knacks with an interesting design).
Also, as I have a fascination with history, I collect things that have, at one time, been useful in day-to-day work but are now discarded as the world has become a very disposable place to live. This includes useful objects humans have invented/created; typewriters,pocket radios & old office bits and pieces just to name a few.
I love books, I have a few. I love typewriters, I have a few.( I like to think of it is as type of printmaking in a way).
I also collect old garden tools. I don’t know why but I just like them.Each tool was made for a purpose and they too were used to create/grow something from nothing.like art, they have on them blood sweat & tears.
So as a way to show my love of both why not join the two.
So I’ve started my own collectable card series. Collectable cards are usually of sport stars, Football, or Basketball for example but I thought I would make my cards of some thing actually useful.
So my first series will be on garden tools. I have many to make so stay tuned! I have more ideas for other card series too. ( It might take me a while but I’ll get there.)
