trying the trapezium layout on landscape format

I used 3 and 4-column designs on different pages as I think a 2-column layout on landscape format make the lines too long to read. Whereas breaking them down into 3 or 4-columns give it better readability and variation. 

printmaking with ink and light bulb. tried different ways of using the light bulb, rolling, spinning, twirling. I think the prints turned out quite interesting and abstract. They also have a certain rhythm it them.

Some of my prints made in the workshop yesterday. It was really fun and I had a great time playing/exploring with the different medium given. I really liked the texture created with the thick brushes. I might explore more on using ink in making prints ‘cause I really like the contrast and results created.
