It's The year of the dragon in Chinese astrology, so on the first day of this year, while recovering of the party we organized the night before, I decided to make a lino. Here's the result.
|printed on white drawing paper, and below on brownish sketching paper printed area 15x21cm|
|I started sketching and soon 'found my dragon|
|Then I drew it on a piece of lino|
Today I made more prints, with colour printed backgrounds. They are drying as we speak.
|when I finished cutting out the dragon in the lino, I started printing right away. I didn't think about it being mirrored when printed, so I had to take out the '2012' bit that I cut out the wrong way (is going to bed early in the morning after a new year's eve party a good excuse for not thinking things through?). Actually, now itt's even better because I could print '2012' apart from the rest and also print a 'plain' dragon without the digits in it. |
