I’ve started work on a new linocut. It’s 30 x 24cm: the largest block I’ve worked with, so far.
This is the first stage: I’ve sketched the design in pencil, and then gone over it in detail with a Sharpie marker. (The best sort of marker to work with on lino! It doesn’t lose any of its definition when you clean the plate — all other “waterproof” markers that I’ve tried fade in the washing.)
This stage took about three hours… It’s going to be a long night.
