Lee Meszaros + Erin Tyner + Grain Edit

Hi there!

Thanks so much for joining me, it is so lovely having you drop by : )

I've got my printmaking class today, so we are going to jump right in...

Lee Meszaros

These "Be Proud" Merit Badges by
Lee Meszaros are fantastic - have you seen them? There are so many great ones to choose from. Lee hand makes each badge - "lovingly silk-screened in dark brown, hand painted with colour, and hand embroidered. All done on cotton and cotton blends, reinforced with interfacing and cotton padding for strength."

Each badge has a pin sewn in the back so they can be worn with pride... : )

Do you love miniatures? I do! For some reason I find them really intriguing. I remember taking my oldest son to a model railway expo - I don't know who was more fascinated, him or me!

These photographs from Erin Tyner's 'Half Awake' series capture my fascination perfectly...take a peek:

I heart....

"Grain edit is focused on classic design work from the 1950s-1970s and contemporary designers that draw inspiration from that time period.

Site content includes interviews, articles, designers’ libraries as well as examples of rare design annuals, type specimens, Ephemera, posters and vintage kids books from our bookshelves."

I love it!

We are doing wood cuts in class today - I'm really looking forward to it... maybe one day I will be able to include my own work in this wee alphabet of ours : )

Have a wonderful day!

See you tomorrow for F (and Friday)! xxoo
