Posts about where I work and what I do there.

New print… finally!

Well. It’s been an interesting 18 months. While Ruby took the reins of pod press and has spent that time producing stock, I’ve been in full-time employment, working as a TA in a local secondary school. The whys and wherefores are a long and tangled journey, but the story has a happy ending, because I’m back, we’re back, and pod press is once more at large… Here’s the first of our new prints, a three-colour limited edition screenprint, along with a couple of our latest cards:

New pod press stock.

There’s an art to the balance between making and marketing. We’ve been doing lots of making, but have very much neglected the marketing! Until now. New stock featured on the pod press blog; on etsy; and on our new facebook page..

Here’s the latest print. It was featured recently on the Print Block Whitstable blog (where I print) – hence the hanger!

Beautiful photographs

We were visited a few weeks ago by our lovely friends Debbie George and Andrew Sanderson, wonderful artists both–a
painter and photographer respectively. Sandy brought his most fabulous old Kodak Specialist half plate camera with him –  a beautiful 1950s camera that he uses for paper negative photography.

That technique is a rare art in itself, and Sandy is one of its leading proponents (he’s written articles and a book about it, too), and is a master technician in the darkroom.

We’re used to seeing Sandy lugging heavy camera equipment around, but this camera takes dedication, not to mention stamina! The results, with Sandy’s experience and skill, are always worth it, though, and we were delighted this week to receive some scanned copies of photos he took in and around our house and Deal.

We have many of Sandy’s amazing photographs, including some beautiful ones of our children dotted all around the house. Looks like we’ll be asking for a few more prints!

For anyone interested in the technical side, the camera gives negatives of 7×5 inches in size; the lens is a Rank Zerox 9.5 inch f4.5 with no shutter and only one aperture. The exposures are controlled by simply uncapping the lens for a period of time.

New prints – finally!

I’ve finally got around to updating my Etsy shop with some new handcoloured screenprints. They’re based on the collage pieces, as you can see, but they’re signficantly more affordable! The hand colouring process keeps them unique, since they all come out a little bit different. And there are some exciting plans afoot on the printing front – more later…

In the meantime, here are the new prints on Etsy…
