Any of you who came along to the National Stationery Week event at Fortnum's this weekend will have spotted these but for those who didn't - here is a look at a rather large personal project I have decided to take on this year. I am producing an A-Z of screen printed animals; each print is 4 colours, 60 x 60cm and will retail at £120 each. A big thank you already to Suki at The Print Block who will be printing these...
I am trying to keep my head down to work through the other 23 letters (!) so I can try and exhibit them altogether before the year is through. Here is the first - A for armadillo.
I am excited to be showing some of my work and talking about my work process with the team of Roger La Borde (who produce my range of greetings cards)at Fortnum and Mason's next weekend as part of National Stationery Week. The event begins on Monday 31st March with a variety of events and happenings each day of the week.
I will be in the stationery department on the third floor between 12 and 6 on Saturday 5th April with sketchbooks, notebooks et al and am going to be launching a new print based project I am very excited about that I have been working on in 2014, aswell as selling other screenprints alongside Roger La Borde's grand collection of cards and gift wrap- if you are around do pop in to say hello and get yourself a print, a nice notebook or a lovely Roger La Borde card.
Above is an illustration by the king of Fortnum and Mason's design - Edward Bawden...you'll have to come instore to see my new things (and get a very extravagant Easter egg).
I am an illustrator and printmaker based in East London. Research is at the heart of my practice and my work frequently explores themes of British folk lore, tradition and superstition. To see more of my work visit www.alicepattullo.com. If you have any questions email me at email@example.com
