This time I'll be brief and share a few tiles I've drawn in the last week. Firstly this tan tile that inadvertently combined the two most recent Diva Challenges.
|Diva #371 & #372 - Onion Drops & Dewd|
Then a tile I didn't finish in time for Adele Bruno's challenge for last week. The first time I tried to read Orwell's 1984 I couldn't connect with it. I tried it again a handful of years later and it all made sense. Sometimes it's just a case of the right book at the wrong time. It's not a situation limited to books either - and I think Adele's Iza tangle has the 1984 effect on me. I first played with it years ago - and liked how it looked, but this time I really connected, I felt the tangle as I drew it. And I think that shows in the finished tile.

on vintage printmaking paper that's as old as me!
And lastly a few Bijou. I'm still keeping my pledge to make a Bijou for every It's a String Thing challenge I fail to make a full size tile for. I noticed I'd missed one right at the start of the year, so that's why the first one uses an 18 as its string - we'll be doing a 19 before we know it!
