Let's Print Some Whales!

Last week I finally picked up my lino blocks and carving knives, and created this print based on my Sperm Whale design. I haven't done block printing for a long, long time. It reminded me how much I love working with inks and printing by hand! 

If you're interested in the process, here are some really good tutorials done by artist Geninne. She uses stamp pads for inking. It's super easy and less messy. I used screen printing inks. It could be a bit messier but you can create endless combinations of colours. If you want to do this properly, you can also use inks that are specific for block printing. 

Copies of the prints are now available in my shop!
