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.
This Linocut is so amazing from 3 Fish Studios in San Francisco. It will take so much training to even get close to this!
This Linocut made by Pablo Picasso in 1962 is Amazing. A lot of contemporary artists are doing some pretty awesome things as well. This piece is from Gallery Pepper I also looked at THIS book series of original linocuts that is really impressive.
Anyway, I hope I’ll be able to show something cool after I have chiseled away at my lino block.
