|Carved in hard artists linoleum, printed using oil based ink on a special press|
|Carved in soft artist linoleum, printed using water based ink and a wooden spoon|
|Carved in flooring linoleum, printed with water based ink and a wooden spoon|
All the pieces are linocuts, meaning I took a piece of linoleum, carved the mirror image of my design in it, then coated it in ink and printed it on the paper. The first two were done in my art class, and the final one is I did at home. I felt rather starving artist, sitting cross legged on my bed, carving out my design in flooring linoleum because artists linoleum costs a fortune and I can get the flooring stuff free, but then I remembered that I'm only a poor artist (who's still in school and supported by her parents) because I spend all my money on clothing (and save for university) and it sort of ruined the moment.
What do you consider your artistic outlet?
