There is just something about them that is really beautiful to look at. I think it’s the randomness of the marks – no thought of how they are put together.

I had my first tutorial yesterday with Arthur which was pretty useful ! He suggested etching on top of these with other random marks. I think this could be really successful so I’m going to have a word with Pete later on today to see if I can get a sort of workshop on Etching. From what I’ve seen of other peoples etchings I think it would lend itself really well to printing on top of these newsprints.

These are just fantastic. The colors and textures remind me a lot of forgotten/abandoned places. Kind of that decayed, peeling paint look. Great finds.
