Mexico in Black and White
‘Mexico’ is my lastest project and it is all printed on my Risograph. During my recent trip to Mexico City and the Yucatan I gave myself the challenge to create a new pattern every day based on what I had seen on my travels. Sometimes the pattern is based on a detail of what I saw or it is a bringing together of a number of experiences into one image. The original drawings were done with a variety of materials ranging from charcoal and watercolor to biro and pencil. For the ‘Mexico’ book I recreated the patterns from my original sketches to be printed at a bigger scale. Using a Risographer printer means I could keep the hand drawn, spontaneous feeling from the original sketches.
The collection of drawings have been published as a limited edition artist book by Slowkunst.
