DE artists Paula Youens and Jeremy Speck hosted a drop-in day to coincide with Phonicon – Exeter’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival.
Around 150 people of all ages came into the studio and worked with a simple monotype process called Transfer Ink Drawing. Using water-based inks the visitors produced little green men in their dozens as well as Darth Vaders, Daleks and plenty more baddies!
The “back to front” process fascinated particularly the children who attended, as images are drawn on the back of the paper and that ‘lifts’ the image from the inked surface.
