Dodo a gogo

My Dodo with a yoyo print is finished! It is a linocut and screenprint measuring 60 x 50cm and it will be available to buy from Material from the opening night of my exhibition “Nick Morley’s World of Wonder” on 15th April.

The final print. The yoyo is quite a bright pink, my photo doesn’t really do it justice! Here are the exhibition details:

  1. how did you print that thin layer of screen print? seems it didn't affect the black at all. great print. well done!

    As a moku hanga printer I'm always jealous of the opacity and power of silkscreen and oil-based inks.
    Great quirky image and I like the old-time feel of the linocut with the hot pink yo-yo.
    Good luck on your show/opening.

    Thanks for the comments. The screenprint inks are water-based (Lascaux) acrylics which are mostly screenprinting paste with only a tiny bit of colour in. The black lino ink (which is oil-based) shows through almost 100% but also becomes deeper and richer where the screen inks go over it. I've used this technique quite a lot and it makes it really easy to register!

    I saw your dodo on Etsy a while ago and lusted after it.

    Funds were tight then but now I have a few pennies to spare.

    Do you still have a print for sale?
