6X8" linocut print on 250gsm Stonehenge paper

This is an original hand pulled reduction linocut print in an edition of 12 only. It was created using professional archival artist materials only. Due to the hand printing process, each print is slightly different and unique. The print shown is representative of the edition. The print you receive may not be the exact one shown but will have the same colour paper and ink. It is unframed.

The character of a Whiskey Jack cannot be matched. They can usually be found around picnic areas, looking for a snack. I once watched one fly off with a whole wiener! It kept dropping it and picking it up again but it didn't give up. I have never met a bird I don't like. I hope this goes to a bird lover like me.

This is a great way to turn favourite drawings into original prints! Here’s how I create a reduction linocut print:

1. I draw a design and transfer to a lino plate
2. I carve out parts I want to stay paper colour
3. I ink up a brayer and roll it onto the plate to transfer the ink
4. I centre paper on the inked plate and run it through the press
5. I repeat for number of prints I want in the edition
6. I carve out areas I want to stay the colour I just inked
7. I repeat steps 3-6 for the remaining colours working from lightest to darkest
8. I end with an edition of beautiful reduction lino cut prints!
