Congratulations defending your PhD Christine! I’ve finished another painting last night, which means this weekend will be full of melanosome and barbule making. The first prototype is done! It’s a labour intensive process (I can’t help but draw parallels to my thesis experience) of lino printing hexagons, sewing these globular, stuffed round shapes, and bringing everything together with gloss medium and roplex. I’ll post some working pictures over the next few days.
