Collections: Lino cuts

After seeing all the print work that other students had put into the exhibition, I thought I would have a try at producing some lino cut prints. Due to the aesthetic created by lino cutting, I decided that I would use medieval style imagery of my characters, Spoon Knight and Knife Dragon, which also fits with the theme of knights.

The designs are based on medieval imagery of knights and dragons. The shapes used are relatively simple due to the forms having to be carved out of wood or, in this case, lino.

Due to other projects, I haven’t had the time to properly print with these lino cuts yet, however I have done a practice print using watered down acrylic paint.

The result hasn’t been unsuccessful. The acrylic being slightly thinner than normal has left some interesting textures, although I think using more professional equipment I will be able to get more definition and more of the detail will be visible.
