'Dreaming 1' printed on shirt by Tracy

Linocut Block Printing WIP 1

So it is the long weekend here and I thought I’d work on something I’ve never done before. Linocut block printing. There is this old pen illustration artwork I made a few year’s back for a screen printing class. Now I’m just repurposing it slightly for block printing. This particular artwork took me approximately a total of 16 hours to carve out. In this little project I created my first lot of process videos just for personal reference. I have uploaded the videos onto YouTube and have it as ‘Unlisted’ so I hope they don’t take it down because I have some other people’s music playing in the background.

Materials:

  • Derivan Block paint
  • Ezy carve block prints
  • Lino carving tools
  • Pencil
  • Rubber paint roller
  • Plain white shirt (I found organic ones from the store)
