I took a break this weekend from the new series of paintings I’ve been working on to build up my folio, and instead finished off a poster piece I’ve had sitting in my to-do pile for a while now.  I’m slowly sorting through my incomplete paintings and either culling, or working on completing them.  I’m a bit over having so many half finished ideas.  Expect to see a couple more lighter feeling poster pieces like this up soon.

This is an A3 poster version of a couple of characters from my Monster Run cards – Originally part of Fearsome friends, as can be seen here in 28for28  … A bit of larger scale brightness for the wall

 

Note : This work is currently available for sale via my Nz online Felt shop  or contact me via vincenteknight@gmail.com in regards to the purchase of this piece.

Trying out a new layout style with a mashup of native New Zealand plants and birds

Step up – Gouache, ink and resin on Stonehenge 245gsm print paper – Available (Framed) AU$240.00 from Sketch and Tulip, North Melbourne

Love love love how it turned out.  Its led me to a new series of works in this layout style, featuring a mashup of that oh so lovely plant the orchid – With an emphasis on my most beloved : The Slipper.  I’m slowly pulling in other features to the work, so that the series grows ever more lush and bizarre the further along track it gets.

Its the first series of work I’ve been excited about enough to want to publicly show in a while now – And I’ve found myself the perfect little venue at Sketch and Tulip close by to my place in North Melbourne!

So I’ve been totally remiss at keeping my blog up to date with all my work over the last few months. I wont go into any lengthy explanations as to the why – Instead here’s an overview of some of the bits I’ve completed in that time :

Unrest is a hand-finished woodblock print I started back in 2004, but was unable to complete within the over short time frame the course gave us. The blocks are somewhere our bottomless pit of a storage unit in Wgtn, so I finished the top two layers by hand in gouache and ink. Edition of 8

Back to the South American Tanager birds paired with coffee plants. Again, first of four that are in the works… Sidetracked again

Lastly a pair of native New Zealand Piwakawaka (Fantails) as per request for a friend of mine …Who then never got back to me about the piece. Ah well!
