I always enjoy visiting the Towner gallery when I’m in Eastbourne. I dropped off my cards (including my new Eastbourne card). Currently there’s a great exhibition: Designing the Everyday. Wonderful examples of Eric Ravillious designs for Wedgewood, Shell Posters and more recently the work of St Judes designers.
The Eastbourne tennis championships are on at Devonshire Park (next door). I enjoyed relaxing in the sunshine and watching the tennis players. I thought it would be a challenge trying to capture their movements.
I’ve just proofed a new linocut. I’ve referenced two drawings I made at a cafe in Hanoi. I wanted to bring together the best bits of each drawing. I really liked the patterns in the armchairs (looked quite Matissey to me) and the woman sitting by the window waiting for her friend to arrive. There was a musical theme evident with the many jazz records on the walls and an eye catching gramophone.
New Eastbourne card has arrived! Available to buy in my online shop.
