Lino Print Test

I've had this lino cut sat on my desk for a few days waiting for me to get myself into gear and get into the print room. I couldn't resist doing a little test. Indian ink dries fast but it created a pretty cool print. I'm looking forward to doing it properly

A Womans Work is Never Done

Saturday, 19 February 2011


I decided to just get stuck straight in and draw directly onto the mannequin. I had the design idea in my head but hadn't done any sketches. My first attempt at placing the scroll made it look too fixed, too tight. I think it would have looked strange with the wings.

So I sketched where the wings would go and played around a lot with the scroll.

I settled on this but I'm still not sure it fully works.. 
but I was eager to get on and fill it in to see how it looked.

Final Product. It's not amazing but for a first go I'm pretty chuffed. I keep changing my mind about whether I like the skull or not.. For now.. I think I do :]]

So.. I was painting a mannequin today and used wood varnish.. thought I'd have a little experiment in my sketchbook and discovered that it doesn't spread when you blow on it like normal paint.. but it's awesome for scratching into :D This was created with a plastic fork but I may have another go with something a bit easier to use.


My friends are in an awesome band called Bear Fight and it inspired me to draw this.
Might add some text to this and screen print it onto a t-shirt for them.

Some little beauties that have been in my head for a while :]]
Want to get them into photoshop for some colour but I've lost the pen for my graphics tablet. If anyone fancies donating one, I'd be eternally grateful.
