Hi! I’m a printmaker working in the North West of England. I print at Hot Bed Press in Salford. Please visit my website and have a look at some of my prints. Thanks. Incidentally, I also have an OCA blog called The Milkman Goes To College which is intended for my tutor and other OCA students.

  2. Hi, Thanks for stopping by Postcard Cafe and for the you tube link to Sand Sea nad Spray. The street stuff was interesting but what a hidden gem of a song at 6min 36secs!!! Brilliant! Have you anything to do with the video? Do you know who the musicians and singer are – she has a great voice. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes, PC

  9. Hi John, I have been viewing your prints on the website. My favourites are the prints of the lily pond. I liked the colours – green, blue and white with the black contrast of the rushes and spire.
    There were echoes of these prints in the photographs of the garden/park and its lily pond in a recent post about a sculpture exhibition.

    Thanks for checking out my Drawstring blog, John. I’ve just been looking through some of your recent posts and can really relate to a lot of what you’ve written about the pleasures and irritations of gallery-going these days. If it wasn’t so late in the day I would probably now deliver a rant of my own on the subject of photography at art exhibitions and the general propensity among otherwise sane adults to take their aesthetic pleasure not directly but rather via the screens of their mobile phones. I’ll stop there.

    BTW, I’m a big fan of Vermeer, too.

  15. I absolutely love this blog! Ty

    Hello! I just found your blog via scribblah rosie’s blog. I’m a printmaker also, originally from Lancashire but now living in Ireland. I read your post about the 20:20 print exchange which I took part in last year through Limerick Printmakers. I’m going to look through my 2014 prints again now in case I’ve got one of yours. Us Northerners crop up everywhere! Great blog as well, very informative and friendly. Here’s mine – http://dawn-west.blogspot.ie.
