Original Ink Drawing by Anita Inverarity
I made by first artists original book today in collaboration with my partner Phil. The book is made up of a concertina frieze of original drawings depicting the Edward Lear poem “The Owl & the Pussycat”. The back and front covers are made of wood (Phil) and are patterned with Pyrography (Me)- the front cover is inset with a brass plate etching from my ink drawing “A Pot Full of Honey” which Phil made using the “Edinburgh Etch” technique.
Took ages to do but very enjoyable :) We are working on some more Paper,Wood, Brass works this year and once we get the collection going I’ll share some photos.
This is the second set of drawings in the concertina which I made into a Greeting Card. The first half can be seen Here
