Sketchbook Crickets and Grasshoppers [feedly]

Sketchbook Crickets and Grasshoppers
// Pencil and Leaf

Earlier in the autumn there was a bright green spindly legged cricket in the wardrobe. They are strange and wonderful things. There are quite a few in the Garden in the summer, and of course grasshoppers are all around the reservoir. 
I am planning a series of prints of singing, chirping, humming things for a woodland project and have been blogging these over on the blog I share with Sue.

and some more thumbnails….





I have been planning a few prints and sometime soon a small booklet might appear but for now No1 lino block and proof print.

I have taken quite a bit of artistic license with this "grasshopper"  but it's fine for some more experiments and does have some of the essence of the sketches and grasshoppery-ness about it.



4 more to come ..
