tooled up

Ooh, am all excited about my new linocutting equipment (it's very, very basic but it will get me started). I'd originally planned a foxy foray into the world of printmaking but, by happy coincidence, I've just received an illustration commission which is so totally suited to linocutting it isn't true. So while there's more riding on my first attempt (a deadline, client and fee for starters!), it also means I've no choice but to stop procrastinating and get stuck in.

And while it'll be too late for this commission, me and a friend are already planning to sign up for this linocutting course at the DCA in May. It's led by Babs Robertson - just looking at her work (below) is inspiring.
