It's been a while, but I've finally been able to get some more lino portraits printed on the work table my dad very kindly made me in the garage. I've created a set of what will be 24 signed limited edition prints all approx. A4 in size of Kurt Schwitters' Swineherd. I also want to do the same for some of my existing prints including the Good Man and He and try to sell them.

The Swineherd

I'm also in the process of creating another lino portrait, this time of the Swineherd (another character from one of Kurt Schwitters Merz stories). Here are some quick drawings from my sketchbook of the character in progress...


A quick rework of my He visual. I've given him his second leg and reworked the composition a bit- I think it looks much better now. Just need to get printing next!

Screenprint Visual

I'm working on creating a new screenprint based upon the 'He' Merz story by Kurt Schwitters. This is currently a work in progress and any comments or feedback would be much appreciated. At the moment my He character only has one leg - initially this seemed a good idea but now I think it looks a bit bizarre- any thoughts? I'm hoping to print this as a signed limited edition series (not sure how many yet) and am going to use the same 3 colour scheme as I did with my He book cover screenprint. They won't be finished for a while though- I need to build a screen printing bed in the garage first!
