Because of my extension i was working within a timeframe in which i had no facilites to create or cut my prints/plates. Eventually i was able to find a studio with a press and i spent a full day working and printing there.
As i had little time i decided i would create the look i was going for - but with only one print (two plates - lino/drypoint). I chose to use the first concept i did as it establishes my pets in a guardian type of role as well as establishing a dream - showing two different types of maps. a relationship map and a emotional one.
while i was printing i came across a couple of complications - the first being that i couldn’t get my lino to register properly over my drypoint - it definitely could have been achieved, however as i had limited recourses i had to be content with what i had. However i became very pleased with the rawness and roughness of the final product - even when i had overprinted a couple of times.
I had a bit of fun using different paper types - for tests i used a thinner type slightly-corrugated paper and a thicker cartridge paper, although overall i was more interested in exploring the outputs of the prints and how i could adjust it afterwards (i.e. using watercolour / markers)
At this point i realised i would beale to meet the criteria of making a set - I decided i would be-able to make a dream set with this print: the first representes a good dream and then it gradually deteriorates into a bad dream. for the last print i was thinking i would vandalise the last print with a marker to enforce this.
