New Work

Date Jun-10-2021

These are some of my latest prints. The first featuring my dog Freddie. They are the first multi plate lino cuts I have done for a while. I made the one of Freddie with his ball stupidly complicated using five different colour plates, two of which have more than one colour applied to them. The one next to it is of my wife Sue and Freddie having an afternoon doze. The third print is of the three of us having breakfast at Landguard Point in Felixstowe.

The print below was made a couple of years ago but I added it to this post because all four of these prints are published in Mascot Media’s new book ‘Paw Prints’. If you love dogs you will love this book.

I have not made many prints since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic but here is one. It is a four colour relief print using wood and MDF blocks. It is of Cromer pier.

I have been spending some time playing with making crafts and printing fabrics to entertain myself and cheer myself up. Here are some examples.

 

I am currently working on some new wood block prints. I will upload them when I can.

    

These are two of the woodcuts I have been working on. One of Freddie, that I did just for fun as a reduction print and a large decorative panel (about 1m high by 35cm). I am working towards making three similar panels in colour, using three or four colour printing blocks for each. The black and white one took ages so this is a long term project. I quite like it in black and white though, so I am keeping my options open.

I have finally got a few prints off of the colour version. This is the left hand panel of a planned triptych. It will be a while before I get the next one done.
