A bit of experimenting with ink and watercolour. The figures are from an Egon Schiele book. I love me a bit of Egon.

After looking through my sketchbooks I thought I would use my drawings for linocuts. This is a drawing of Slovakia from 2009. I carved the lino by following my rough pencil lines exactly as they are in my sketch, but I'm not quite sure it works with this drawing. I may give it another go and add some texture to the house walls...or something.

I have a linocut printing workshop coming up with Sheffield artist James Green in January but I just couldn't wait any longer. I bought all the supplies and tools and started printing at home. It's very addictive and satisfying! The mother and baby penguin is my first.
