'Scribbly boring' silk cut lino print © M.Burton
I have just completed the sequel to 'Self portrait with beetle,' an image I have struggled with for weeks. I have been very taken with the patterns of the 'scribbly borers' in some of the fallen trees around my house. 'Boring' and 'drawing' have become a kind of rhyming slang to me. I wasn't sure what to do but luckily my subconscious took over and I literally saw the the design in a dream. So fitting, as this week also marks the posting of Jeannette Davison's lovely article about all that emerges from my cocoon of a studio. ISIIAD (I saw it in a dream) is an art and design blog, and her recent post is HERE.
