I hope you got the best grade possible (but then again, I know nothing about animation, so I can't actually tell how well done it is technically, but I think it's awesome and I would give you an A+  Tongue).

Thank you so much.  We actually got our results a few days ago, and I got a High Distinction, which is the highest mark we can get. Smiley

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I posted in these art forums, and I wanted to share my Alice in Wonderland work from this semester just past (I study printmaking at university).

First up was a linocut reduction print, which I then folded up into a fortune teller.  You can read more about it here.



The next project was a wood engraving featuring the White Rabbit:

We then moved on to screenprinting, and the assignment was to create a series of five prints on your theme  Here they are all together:

And here is a close-up of one print:

The final project for that particular class was to use CMYK in screenprinting, and I came up with these postcards:

It didn't end there though!  I ended up using the Alice theme in my Artist's Books class as well, and made these teacups.  The name for this piece is We're all mad here (collect your thoughts).

I get my results for the year tomorrow, which is a little frightening.  I feel like I did well, but you can never really know what someone's reaction to your work will be.  

Hope you like it!

I remembered the brand of stuff we used at uni -- Lascaux.

Also, Melbourne Etching Supplies have some great sales on at the moment.  They're on St David St Fitzroy, just off Brunswick St.

If you'd like to take some Aboriginal art, Merrepen Arts from the Daly River Region has some beautiful stuff (including cards if you wanted something inexpensive).  http://www.merrepenarts.com/

Screenprinting is pretty expensive to get set up for -- perhaps you could try it out using someone else's supplies to see if you like it?

It depends how much you want to spend.

I work in the manchester area of a big department store, and our Australian made wool, mohair and alpaca blankets and throws are always really popular gifts for people overseas.

You could also send some nice Australian wine or gourmet food items.

I know what you mean.  I first read the Eleanor Coerr story Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes about 15 years ago, when I was studying Japanese in high school.  It had a profound effect on me, and when I re-read at the start of this project I was a mess all over again.  I read that book and another, somewhat more factual account of Sadako's life, One thousand paper cranes: the story of Sadako and the Children's Peace Statue, by Takayuki Ishii several times during the project, and ended up in tears every single time.

Thanks CraftyLittleDevil. Smiley

I've just added the video to YouTube as well -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1TtwQ0gHIo -- obviously, it's the viewing quality on YouTube isn't as good as the video on my site, but it's more accessible.

I use paypal, and I'm also going to list that Australian shoppers can direct deposit into my bank account.
