Printing trials 2 by axlesax Printing trials 2 by axlesax
I'm still practicing linocut. As the last one satisfied me, and as I'm a little bit insane, I wanted to push the details further.

So I've chosen another picture, a hard and big one. Type Song 16, about Seven Seas of Rhye by Queen, and proudly awarded by a Daily Deviation, was perfect to take up the challenge.

EDIT : The final print is now available on my Etsy shop [link]

Linocuts are hell to make in my opinion, but the result is wonderful. I like this one very much. This is a work that I'd want to my wall too. :D I need to get a job in order to order things from you.

I missed your comments, Forem ! Linocut is not that hard, it just requires patience. And some stuff. And a healthy back.

Well I finally printed a numbered edition of this piece. It's gonna be sold but I have to check online shops, guidelines, shipping, etc.

I missed your works and works! Had to go around your gallery again. Linocut is not hard, that's true. Needs a lot of work though, as does everything. Last time I did lino the knife I was using snapped half and hit to my hand. ^^'' I'd still like to do some graphics again.

Hmm.. you could do postcards too. This style would be gorgeous to them. Hit me with a note about the price when you have it, I don't promise to buy anything as I am unemployed now, but I might get a present from a friend. ;)

Linocut is dangerous, I got some cuts in my fingers as well. I should wear coat of mail gloves, just like butchers.

I will probably make some postcards. I recently brought a screw press in a flea market, and just restored it. It's gonna be a great tool to print small plates. But actually I haven't published any item to be sold, I can warn you about this if you want to.

These times I don't answer to messages regularly 'cause I'm spending more time away from my computer, but I'm glad to hear from you again. :)

Dear friend, it's been awhile again. How are you?

I've used past few weeks doing more traditional
than digital art and now digital art seems to be
complicated :D. I have to refresh my memory about
painting with wacom again.

Screw press is something I've thought buying.
But I think I'll wait until I've got proper workshop..
Have you already made postcards? I'm being curious :).

I hope to hear from you again :D. Until then,
take care and have a great summer!

Forem

Hi Forem, I'm pleased to hear from you again !

Yeah coming back to digital takes time. I'm working on a big commission of type portraits this week and after spending time on engravings and away from my computer, the beginning was a bit tiring for my eyes and wrists. :)

I've tried to make one postcard for the moment. I didn't get an idea which was clever enough yet so let's say it's for fun. Maybe I'll post it here later to fill your appetite. :)

And you, what are you doing these times ?

Yeah I think I will. I have to find the best paper, and learn more about making a numbered edition (like true artists, haha). And I have to learn more about etsy too (fees, shipping, etc), I don't know how it works.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your support !
