I have been working on this project about Captain Cook for what seems like a really long time now- the intention was a sort of graphic novel told through objects. But there have been so many things I needed to learn to do, letterpress printing, screen printing, upholstery-but I love all that, I am sort of a process junkie. Oh and I had to teach myself to draw - at least a bit, I seem to have missed out on that skill, it was probably that same brilliant part of my brain responsible for not learning how to type. At any rate here are some early test cups, Doretha and Joseph Banks and a Kuri, a Hawaiian dog extinct in the 1800's.
