Illustrator Marion Deuchars is following up her highly successful Let’s Make Some Great Art book with a new publication aimed at encouraging young artists to get messy. And it has a charming film to promote it
Let’s Make Some Great Fingerprint Art will be published by Laurence King in October.
“It’s for a slightly younger audience, but I wanted to show what was possible with one of the most basic forms of printing… your thumb! ” Deuchars says. “Although fingerprinting is normally cartoony, I wanted to try and push this medium to show that it could be more sophisticated but at the same time very accessible.”
“It’s a very playful book,” Deuchars says. “I wanted to show how to create interesting characters but also learn some other art techniques alongside fingerprinting.”
As with Let’s Make Some Great Art, Deuchars has worked with Animade to create a film to promote the book.
Let’s Make Some Great Fingerprint Art is priced £9.95
