Wednesday

I can't wait for summer. Specifically some free time in summer to work on new prints and books. I think the light evenings are finally getting through to my brain, and I'm starting to try and spend time in my studio after work, starting to have free time at lunch times to make prints...

I seem to have spent the last few months starting things and never finishing them, not being able to motivate myself, not feeling like anything is worth it. I know this is just how it goes, but at the time that doesn't seem to help. But in the last few days I've looked at the piles of cover-less books and screen printing positives and notes scrawled on scraps on my shelves and felt not overwhelmed but perhaps a little bit inspired to make a start on them again...

Today I sewed a book, the finished thing feels good in my hands.


And I wonder what I could do if I felt motivated all the time?!

Meticulous and beautiful. I'm wondering if your 'day job' is in a booking binding company? Or is it something completely different?
