"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

8 colour reduction linocut. 120mm x 180mm.
Edition of 6.

Not my usual subject matter, but I've been trying a different registration system and needed a fiddly complicated sort of composition. So this assortment of pebbles, limpet and mussel shells and a crab collected by Owen and Carly on Llandudno beach came in handy.

The registration worked better. I only lost two prints, which by my standards is a massive improvement on the old system.

Lovely work! I'm a scratchboard illustrator (natural history kids books) and love linocut work. Will look forward to seeing more of your posts.

Hi Claudia

Welcome to my blog. I hope you continue to enjoy the posts. I used to do a lot of scraperboard illustrations but haven't posted any recently on my blog. If you follow the link to my website there are some on there.
