We returned home from our trip to the UK with, predictably, hundreds of photos. I’ve had to be very strict with myself to distil the week and a half long trip into just two (or in some cases, where I failed to be sufficiently strict, four) pictures a day. Pictures that somehow encapsulate the essence of each day for me…

Holidays are fantastic… but wouldn’t they be doubly-so if there was a little gang of holiday-sprites furiously working away at all the stuff you’re neglecting while you’re away? So you wouldn’t return to an overflowing email inbox and mountains of work. Not wanting to ask too much, but it would be great if they hung around after your return to do the holiday laundry as well. I’ll be scaling that mountain this weekend – hope you’re up to something less prosaic :)

I recently printed the fourth series in my ongoing 'Wonders from a Cabinet of Curiosities' project. This time the theme is vegetable rather than animal (fabulous fungi in fact 🍄), and what better day to post this series than #MycologyMonday (which, I believe, is a thing on IG!) Swipe --> to see all six 'shrooms in the series. Limited edition silkscreen prints are now available at the always awesome @otherist in Amsterdam (or from my online shop - link in bio) - #screenprinting #zeefdruk #serigraph #mushrooms #fungi #mycology #terrarium #glassjar #belljar #cloche #curiositycabinet #blackandwhite #graphic #drawing #pattern #art #printmaking #get_imprinted - #morel #oyster #nameko #crepidotus #amanitamuscaria #shiitake -

The Iriški Venac TV tower - a soaring concrete structure perched high in the Fruška gora hills – is beautiful in its Brutalism (built in 1975 and partly destroyed by NATO bombs in 1999). It reminds me of a desiccated seed pod husk or a gargantuan radiolarian… - #architecture #brutalism #brutal_architecture #tower #concrete #structure #symmetry #organic #form #fruška_gora #novisad #vojvodina #serbia #war #damaged #bombed -
