Printmaking: Love for the Linocutting

I found something to blog about! I knew I had forgotten something!

I have a confession to make: I LOVE linocutting now. Actually love. Like j’adore, you know? πŸ™‚
I know… I used to hate it, but woo look at me go now:

Β 

I first printed with red ink (which I think is pretty nice?) and then I got a bit adventurous and rolled black ink on, but allowed for some red to show through and voila – a kind of grunge look.Β 

These are a bit ofΒ extra work because I decided I didn’t like my first linocut as it doesn’t really fit on with my ‘typographic faces’ theme – of which I need to do some more face designs actually, thinking about it! Which reminds me… I need to re-do all of my Printmaking folder! I have done it in rough but want to make it nice and presented well etc – I’m thinking about doing all the pages and then japanese stab binding it (oooh)!

I am hoping to do some moreΒ linocutting over christmas… but won’t spoil the surprise! πŸ™‚
