Here is the final print for the Cambridge Folk Festival project!
Earlier this year I created a design for the Cambridge Folk Festival. I chose to do a reduction linocut and to experiment with ‘rainbow rolling’!
Want to see some of my first goes at printmaking? Then head over to Instagram for Throwback Thursday!
The other week, whilst showing my sister how to linocut, I made a simple Valentine’s card with a pink poodle on it (not much to do with Valentine’s I know!)
I have been working on a few projects over the last couple of weeks, which I am hoping to be able show you soon, one of which was a submission to the Secret 7″ project, fingers crossed!
The other week I taught my sister how to linocut. We decided to make Valentine cards and even with her incredibly long nails she managed this! Not bad for a first go I think!
Over the holidays I was asked to make a linocut of a seahorse. I used a reduction method to create this print.
My image for the CSV ‘Young People Can Do Great Things…’ poster competition was chosen as the winning entry by Catherine Flood, Print Curator at the V&A. I received a signed copy of her book in the post today! I also got feedback from Catherine: ‘I think this is a strong idea with a clear and memorable graphic. I like the way the designer has used colour to enhance the text and speak directly to the viewer.’ Read about the competition here.
I have entered a poster competition being run by the volunteering charity CSV, which is asking entrants to design a poster based on the slogan ‘Young people can do great things…if you give us a chance…’ The competition is to be judged by Catherine Flood, the Print Curator at the V&A Museum. My entry is a linocut with digital text. Find out more about the competition here.
