Rainy Prints

I love the look of Rainy Prints, who create these really nice hand-pressed linoleum cuts. So affordable, too. See the process to printmaking here on the Rainy blog. I love this blog – a teaching blog. I’d love to find more blogs that explain a process, like how to sew, reupholster furniture, how to get started on a letterpress, textile design, etc. I know they would be very time consuming, and most small business owners do not have the time to blog about their work in addition to create, market, ship, deal with customers, present at shows, etc. That’s why a blog like Rainy Prints is so unique and special to me. Do you know of any process oriented blogs on said topics?

coffee + cre8tive {dec 5 ’06}


I’m drawing (no pun intended) some major inspiration today from talented freelance illustrator Debbie Hill in the UK. “I like to experiment with lots of materials and processes in my work,” Debbie adds that some of these include “experimental drawing, photography, textiles, embroidery, monoprinting, bookbinding, animation, drypoint printing and book design.” Visit her blog and website to view her portfolio. I’m loving the addition of buttons to pencil illustrations, giving them that added dimension, so precious!
