New Linocut Dinosaur Print

This is my new linocut, ‘Handbag’. As you can see, it is a T-Rex with a handbag. This is the largest linocut I’ve made so far, the paper measuring 76 x 112cm (30 x 44in). The colour is screenprinted over the black linocut outline once it’s dry. Because the screenprinting inks I used were very thin they do not cover the black (it does not work if there is any white in the ink). This is a technique I’ve used quite a lot before. It makes it very easy to register the different colour as you are printing the key block first.
A detail from the print. This is on show at High Roller Society in East London until 24th July.
