mind moving mono prints

I have been a little stuck lately.
I sit at my desk and nothing happens.
(I am guessing my life situation is getting to me, but I am trying not to admit it completely)...
Today, I decided to get some ideas down for a couple of submissions to on-line publications, in the flesh themed exhibitions... and ended up with these. The subconscious always wins. I will, of course, paint over the top of these mono prints.

I received my fabulous Moo business cards today that I won by writing a comment on their blog recently. They are very, very nice, as usual. Beautiful colours, perfect quality. Thanks Moo.
playing with Spoonflower

This morning, well, to be honest, this week, I have spent the few hours that I have been able to do my own work, either looking morbidly at an A2 sized piece of paper, or desperately looking at an A4 piece of paper, or canvas... so I decided to just do something to get the juices flowing. I took some photos, played with the Hipstamatic application and designed fabric (today). This is my piece for the Spoonflower Cheaters Quilt competition. I do have it set as a mirror image when it repeats so the furry, red monster becomes a pushme-pullyou.

Today, I finally have my Moleskine Exchange 72 generally done. I have been working further into the book too, but have yet to finish it. Soon soon. I want total interaction in my book.
website ideas flowing

For weeks, perhaps even months, I have been harassing my man to help me create a new website that is actually on my server and not on Flickr, and he has always asked me to show him what I wanted. I have pointed him towards people's sites like Catherine Campbell , Marco Wagner or Maria Eugenia ... to give three examples.
He looks at their sites. he comes back after surfing the other day and tells me that those types of portfolio site just don't seem very "me" and I should perhaps think of something that has the pieces in a different piece of work, something created with elements of the original ones... I thought it was a good idea of course, but was just daunted.
I showed him Tim Danko's Psalm Sketchbook he agreed it was cool and kind of along the lines of what he had in mind... so this is where I am (above) after a small blow up in our house and some name calling... but I think this is a good idea. Using my a base of particular Lomography photos, I then place my pieces, or a part there of in the image.
(I have noticed I have the left handed thing going where nearly everyone faces the same way, I may flip some of the pieces). Onward we go!
