Like the small paintings I've made for the same show, the illustrations are all silhouettes. The front and back covers are gessoed mdf panels, hand painted and lettered with acrylic paint and pigmented ink. In the past I've used mdf as a support for small paintings, so already knew what a sympathetic surface it provides, particularly for finely detailed work. The illustration inside the book is pigmented drawing ink on handmade Khadi paper.
The making of this modest work has been something of a voyage of discovery; essentially it’s painting and drawing presented in book form. I’ve found the whole process so engaging and satisfying that similar books are already planned.
