The ins and outs of my vampire story are still lost on the small people who pop in and out of my studio, so I’m doing some work to clarify the narrative today. It involves swapping frames around here and there but also I’m adding guide music and sounds today. I’ve found some lively Balkan folk music to give me a flavour, here at the comprehensive Dunav resource. (The Frombald story is Serbian.) I’ve also been experimenting with printing in two colours and making fades with the rubber stamps by not visiting the ink pad between impressions. The technique creates an eye-wateringly frenzied pace, so I have to think of ways that I can slow it down, or make little breaks without loss of vitality.
