Here's the fourth print in my "Conscious Healing" range. I've putting together a series of prints that trigger a reminder in me to be good to myself, and take care of my mental health. This one first started as a hand printed lino cut, but I wanted to polish the image further, so took it to work digitally. It's a quote from RuPaul, and it's something I try to remind myself daily. It's too easy to get caught up worrying what other people think of me and things I do...until I realise, I have no business worrying about what's in someone else's mind.
The whole print is illustrated by hand, using a combination of calligraphy and digital painting techniques. Quite often, with typography prints, they are made with pre-existing fonts (not that there's anything wrong with that) whereas this print has had each and every stroke deliberated over and considered.
The text is created in shades of bronze, gold, browns and teals, upon a background blend of twilight greys and dusky charcoal.
Artwork is open edition and created in my York based studio and printed in York. All hand signed and dated, by me.
