The Cherry Post No.161 | Experimental

Hello all to this week’s Cherry Post!

As usual, before I start the CP, just a reminder if you like art and crafts, I recommend you check out the Bonfire Banter podcast!

It’s a small podcast that I run with one of my best friends Dene that we have been producing since April 2018. You can find all the content we have produced so far by checking out The Great Shows here but you can find the podcast on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcast & now Youtube!

With that out of the way, let’s start the post!

 

 

Well on Friday I took a slight break from any BC/print work to relax on something else, as it helps with mental health. For the past week I have working on another lego set I got for my birthday, a red London bus that took forever to build but managed to finish it off on Friday, it’s good to take a break every now and then don’t you think?

On Saturday, the most recent Bonfirecherry Youtube video went live, a time lapse video that was fun to produce & is now on the front page of this website! PLEASE COMMENT BELOW ON YOUR THOUGHTS OF THIS CHANGES!

More experiment #linocut #prints

I decided to do something experimental this week, it’s Bonfirecherrys 6th birthday coming up in a few week and to celebrate it I have had the random idea to do “Half & Half” linocut prints, a limited run of prints mixing different Bonfirecherry designs that I have produced over the years, something a bit different. Give your thoughts on the designs down in the comments.

Wednesday was another creative day as I produced a custom t-shirt design for a client & worked on Coby The Llama/ Llama Frenzy (haven’t decided on a name at the time I’m writing this) wrapping fabric in White as I produced the design in Yellow last week.

Just produced a custom t-shirt 😊

I did produce a custom t-shirt while I was in the shed, which was great to do.

 

 

The highlight of the week was going to be this months Northampton Creative Meet-up, a meet-up that I have set up a few months ago BUT due to the way that some meet-ups work, this was a miss for me as not a lot of people were able to turn up due to a variety of reasons that can’t be helped.

This weeks youtube channel video is going to be about the event as originally planned BUT will now include how meet-ups sometimes go, that will be live on Saturday.

Speaking of Saturday, me and Dene will be recording new episodes of the Bonfire Banter Podcast this weekend as the both of us were not well last weekend, it’s going to be good!

I think that’s everything I can think of, thanks for reading!
