A Carving, A Cat, And A Horse’s Skull

23 Dec

Cut 1

After a long break, I did some lino cutting today. It’s been months ….. I don’t think I’ve gone as long as this without doing some printmaking. The pandemic has had a strange effect on me and although I’ve been doing loads of painting and drawing, I haven’t been able to work up the enthusiasm to do any printmaking. Until now.

It’s almost time for the Mari Lwyd to make an appearance. She’s an ancient tradition, based on a horse’s skull, and for the past couple of years I’ve made New Year greeting cards of her from lino cuts. So I got stuck in today and quickly got into the zone. Hope to have it finished in a couple of days and printed up, ready to send out in plenty of time for Hen Galan the “old” New Year.

And the cat “helped” me …….

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.
