Airplane Linocut Printed on an Etching Press + Liz Phair

My newest linoleum block print is of an airplane window seat view at dusk. It's printed with Schmincke Aqua Linoprint Ink on 250 gsm Stonehenge paper. I was playing with that feeling of flying over a city and looking out at the sprawling, lit up urban landscape below.

I remember that great 1990's Liz Phair song, "Stratford-On-Guy," which starts off with the lyrics, "I was flying into Chicago at night...." That song's video on YouTube is definitely worth a watch. And, for a deep dive into that track, check out PopMatters' take on it.

Here's a little video I made while printing the final layer on my small press, which is a Blick Econo Etch Model II Press. The linocut is part of a series of airplane window view artworks and is now available in my Etsy shop. If you have any questions about how my prints are made, please feel free to email me!

Anglerfish Lino Print, T-Shirt and Blended Roll Technique Video

This is a new anglerfish linocut print and you'll notice the gradient effect, which is done with a blended (rainbow) roll of the relief printmaking ink. The lino print is now available in my Etsy shop. This short video shows the technique I used for inking up the linoleum block with the blended roll.

The initial idea for the deep sea print came from my son (and Octonauts superfan) who wanted me to design a new shirt for him and here you can see me printing the block printed t-shirt. I used Gamblin's Drive By Black Textile Ink - a good option for printing on fabric.
