Sunshiney sketchbook plans a-forming...
22cm x 22cm, dip-nib pen and ink. 🗿

I’ve been really loving golding up this ‘Throne’ over the last little while. It’s a nice meditative place to be, laying down gold leaf and slowly drawing into it while listening to music, audiobooks, or good old silence.
A little tidying up on the details and this will be off to its new home. 🔥
Swipe for a couple of detail shots.

I’m proper pleased to finally be able to say that I have new work featuring in another beautiful @foliosociety edition, this time by my all-time favourite author Hermann Hesse.
‘Steppenwolf’ is one of Hesse’s major books and is a banger of a read.
I’ve just put new screen print and giclee print editions of the cover piece, ‘Wolf’, up on my 👁✨new✨👁 website.
The screen print is at a special intro price until noon Saturday and there’ll also be 3 signed copies of the book itself going into 3 random orders made in that time, so get in there, my friends. Smaller giclees are also available.
More close-up shots and full details are on the front page of my site, danhillier.com.☝️
I’m so happy with this, thanks🙏 to @foliosociety again. You can buy the book from their website for £35. 🐺

I am a stag: of seven tines,
I am a flood: across a plain,
I am a wind: on a deep lake,
I am a tear: the Sun lets fall,
I am a hawk: above the cliff,
I am a thorn: beneath the nail,
I am a wonder: among flowers,
I am a wizard: who but I
Sets the cool head aflame with smoke?

I am a spear: that roars for blood,
I am a salmon: in a pool,
I am a lure: from paradise,
I am a hill: where poets walk,
I am a boar: ruthless and red,
I am a breaker: threatening doom,
I am a tide: that drags to death,
I am an infant: who but I
Peeps from the unhewn dolmen’s, arch?

I am the womb: of every holt,
I am the blaze: on every hill,
I am the queen: of every hive,
I am the shield: for every head,
I am the tomb: of every hope.
~
Song of Amergin translated by Robert Graves

‘Requiem’ with gold-leaf, pencil and paint.
Here are a few shots and a video of the gold-leaf special I made for @artrepublic’s new originals gallery in Brighton, which is opening on May 4th.

I made this with a lot of love over the last few days.

It’s at @raysglassandframes being put into a lovely float-mounted frame with non-reflective glass, and will be available for your inspection at Art Republic next week. Have a look at their feed for incoming details on that. I might see you there.

There are some making-of snippets on my story still if you fancy a look at those snippets on my story with your eyes.

Music playing in the video is ‘You Are a Memory’ by Message to Bears. Lovely.🕺🏽
