Lino-printed bits and pieces

2개월 전

I've not had time to do much art recently, so when asked by a friend to create some greetings cards to sell at a Christmas market in aid of a friend's healthcare fund, I was spurred into some much-needed creativity again. I've spent the last few weekends designing, cutting lino, and printing, to create some cards, which I hoped may help to raise funds on the stall.

I thought I'd share some of them here, and maybe spur others into creating again, if like me, you've not had the time to recently. Spending time carving lino and printing has been meditative and relaxing for me, and I'm really glad to have been given a reason to spend more time on it!







I also just started printing a scarf using the reindeers I cut.


I'm thinking I may do a short 'introduction to lino printing' post here soon, for anyone who may be interested in giving it a go :-)

Yes please do the intro to lino printing post, that would be great. I remember doing linocut in grade school and high school art classes and really enjoying it. I would love to get back into it. Your cards turned out great! The fox and the first wolf (with green trees) are probably my favs but they are all awesome :)

Thanks! The fox is definitely a favourite! I was never taught in art classes at school, so have taught myself. Will get on to planning the intro to lino printing post shortly! :-)
