Still so much work to do but I am hoping I can get this portrait completed in time to include it in a zine of my artwork. I will be selling some copies at the craft market but I will also hold back copies to sell internationally online
Portrait of a typewriter
Raven for your caw
A day out on the Thames
Courting on the wing
Over breakfast this morning I discovered a thing…
Printing without a press
This is the first test this evening of a bookplate design. A lino cut of my Underwood 5, and text printed by hand using some type I bought off eBay a few years ago. I made the text block by clamping the letters and spaces together with duck tape. I’m using oil based block printing ink, and rubbing the back of the paper with a bone letter opener. The text block is simply stamped on by hand. I do love making things completely by hand. Don’t let the lack of a printing press stop you from making prints at home.
