The creation of:

Never Ever Before

In 2007 and 2008 I dabbled with traditional printmaking techniques.

Mono-printing results.

There was also a second mural for Taree Library.

At around the same time I spent a day discussing/creating abstract art with my daughter's Yr 6 class and their very creative teacher. The character of Big had been floating around in my head since my week printmaking at "Camp Creative Bellingen 07" and was obviously trying to sneak out. The story idea became fully realised during a couple of fun ink splattered days with a printmaking friend of mine.

In the drifting swirling land of small, Big was born.
Big stands solid, strong and predictable, until the day a breeze bigger than never ever before begins to blow . . .
All the elements blended together, type-set and ready to print
