Messenger Linocut Print


Printed on handmade paper made from recycled paper shreddings.

Each order contains one A5 print.

This is the second messenger moth I've carved.
The messenger delivers stories of the past and the future. Look deep into its eyes and you will see what you want to see. The variables are endless, and nothing is true.
Since the variables are endless so are the moths that deliver.
Every single one of my prints is hand-printed and not a reproduction.
There are many different printmaking techniques.
Traditional printmaking techniques include relief printing, lithography, intaglio printing, and screen printing. At the moment, I prefer linocut printmaking which is a type of relief printing. All of my prints are created using this process.
First I start by drawing the image desired to carve onto a block of linoleum. Areas to remain the color of the surface being printed on are carved from the block first. Then the ink is rolled onto the uncut surface of the block. I then lay the paper on top of the block, first attaching the tabs that hold the paper in place so that each time I lay down the paper the image is transferred with complete registration. When the paper is removed the image then appears in reverse.
