I really really liked the red and green printed wooden and cardboard boxes at a market in Venice. Whilst there, I drew some of the typefaces and fruit pictograms and took lots of photos for research. I was even lucky enough to be there when they were packing the market up and so managed to get one of the fruit boxes to bring home! The strong colour theme, with a limited pallete and overprinting along with the typefaces really charmed me. This will be the starting point of a new piece of work... so watch this space.


I'm just back from a short trip to Venice - out of all the things there were to see, here are some of my favourites.....

...... and of course the gondalas too.
