Inspired By …Linocut Prints

 

A while back I went to a gallery in the outer sunset and the artists who ran the studio did a lot of really amazing Lino Prints. While I was studying at art school I saw lots of different printing processes and have always been fascinated with them.  Lino Printing is a process using a linoleum(hence “lino”) plate and you carve out an image or design; then roll ink over it and press the carved image onto another surface. After seeing all of the amazing images at 3 fish studios I was inspired to go buy a linoleum block and some carving tools from our local art store and starting searching around the internet for more inspiration.

Anyway, I hope I’ll be able to show something cool after I have chiseled away at my lino block.
