original print from linocut
12.75 x 16.25 inches
A linoprint based on my pen and ink drawing, Slemish magpie. Even during my foundation course at Belfast Art College, we never did any linocuts, although we did do a module on monoprinting and screen printing. I preferred monoprinting - still do! I decided to give it a go since I thought the graphic-like quality in some of my pieces would lend itself to the marks made in relief printing. This one is a bit rough around the edges, but in a way, I kind of like that. I would really love to explore this medium a bit more. Sure I know you`re supposed to do a limited edition number of prints but that will be for the next one!
