Jarvis Cocker portrait in linocut

I’ve finally got round to carving and printing my portrait of Jarvis Cocker. It is one of a series of linocut portraits of geek heroes. I have also done Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock (see below). Both are available from my Etsy shop:

Here are a few photos of the process of making the Jarvis linocut. The first stage is to transfer the drawing to the block using transfer paper.


Then the carving (obviously!) which I don’t have any photos of. Then after inking up the lino I print it on my etching press:
