George Douglas Workshop I

These are some pictures from the Picture Hooks workshop with George Douglas that I attended last weekend. At the end of two days, of sometimes frenzied printing, we spent 3 hours making monsters, for as George rightly pointed out; "Monsters cannot be wrong and they don't have to be pretty." Freedom! The only constraint being our attachment to certain printed textures and visuals, that needed to cut and splice into their new beastly incarnation. 
The creativity, humour and ingenuity of my fellow students knew no bounds, their bestiary was wicked, funny, stylish and fabulous. Above are some examples of their wonderful work.
