This is my sketchbook drawing of a design for the commissioned work for the neice of a friend at LibertyTown who is turning 21 in October. She likes cupcakes, so I went with that theme and created 21 little images about the mighty sweet treat for a block print design.
I decided to split the design in three smaller blocks and cut and printed the first one today. I have already transfered the second set of nine little pictures to the second block, and then I will do the bottom three cupakes on a third block so that I can remove it and still use the other blocks for a less specifically birthday work. I'll be holding my breath as I print each block, one beneath the next!
I can also see this design as a painting. I have a 24 x 48 canvas which needs rehabilitating, and this might be just the thing for it.
