Linocut 1 - first print

Relief printing from lino, with water-based ink on good paper. I need to practice with the gouges some more, but I'm reasonably happy with this.

I remember doing those in high school Art. It was one of the things that I could do tolerably well. (As opposed to drawing...) I think I did a picture of Odie from the garfield comics. ie: I picked something EASY that I could trace, so drawing wasn't necessary...

Heating the lino blocks with an old iron was fun and I'm surprised there were no pranks that I remember. (This is the same class that once featured one of the guys getting caught putting black marks from his shoes all over the floor - he had to clean them off with metho. He had a lighter in his pocket. It turns out that when you've been wiping metho on the floor for a while, you can light it...)

We didn't get to do anything fun like that in my art classes - the best I ever got in that line was potato-printing in primary school.
