This project came about when playing very loud music whilst working alone in my studio. Sometimes finding it difficult to remain motivated through the long periods of lockdown and lack of external stimulation I used some of my favourite bands to keep me moving. It’s fair to say Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin at high decibel levels solved the problem. Hence the title of my latest book: Noise.
This mixed media book has been created using monotype printing, various handmade stencils and stamps, line drawing and linocut text.
The structure has been constructed using 200gsm Magnani Pescia for the cover and wrap around, a mix of 130gsm Magnani Pescia and tracing paper for the pages, and pamphlet stitch binding with tie closure.
Wet media includes acrylic paints, drawing inks, fibre-tipped pen and oil-based printing inks.
Here are a few of the pages:
