In which I share some old prints

As I’m getting ready to start the first part of the OCA’s Printmaking 1 course, I thought I’d look back over some old prints I made.  I took some photos and put them here. 

Some of the prints are ones I made on the York College course – the etchings and the woodcut with chine collé.  Some are ones I just played around with at home – the animals, the portraits, the mermaid.  The fishy ones are monoprints I did on an OCA day course, and later printed over with a linocut goldfish.

The one I’m most proud of is the one pictured here – it’s a two colour reduction linocut of Robin Williams and Mike Heron from the Incredible String Band.  It’s A3 in size, so quite big for me, and I was pleased with the way I captured their portraits and added the vines and text. 

My art supplies from Great Art arrived today so I’m hoping to start printmaking at the weekend!


  1. The ISB print could be a bank note design, if you screw your eyes up !
