In the run up to the Zappa print I have already posted I was toying with traditional Japanese woodcut techniques as a possible format, but I stuck with the lino. These are some prints I produced as an experiment for the Zappa print, I really enjoyed the process behind the Japanese technique and plan to use it again in the near future.
Along with focusing on lino and woodcut, I’ve been trying my hands at as many different print techniques as I can and I’ve posted a few up; A photoetching of a photo my dad took back in New York in the mid-seventies and a sugarlift etching of Tom Waits.
Earlier this year I finished a set of prints based on my trip to Cambodia. Recently I collaborated with Robin Cox to create a book in which to house the prints.
Another part of the Music Heroes set, this one of Bo Diddley is by far my favourite piece that I’ve produced to date. It is an A1 3 colour reduction woodcut print on a sheet of ply.
Just ordered a couple of 45s. I Got Mine by The Black Keys is one of them, I ordered it in particular for this B-side…
