I think that's enough bee posts for this week.
(I shot it on a coloured background so you could see the fibres in the awesome paper.)
If you are so inclined, it's available in the shop.
I've been anxious to try out the Unryu paper I received a few weeks ago so I decided to have go at a small linocut. The image is approximately 3"x 4" on 5"x 7" paper.
I cut the plate tonight and made 8 prints. The thin paper made hand burnishing easy-peesy.
It's been nearly a year since my last linocut... can't wait to do some more. When these dry I'll post a better image.

Made using the marker tools in Sketchbook Pro on the iPad.
I am doing other things beside iPad doodles. I've got 5 paintings in progress that I've been picking at this past month. Also, I recently splurged and bought myself a big roll of Unryu paper (11 yards!) in anticipation of new linos.

These critters were drawn for The Independent (NL) about 5 years ago. I don't recall the story they accompanied but my crackerjack sleuthing skills tell me it may have had something to do with bugs. According to my detailed notes, we've got a Garden Spider, a Cinch Bug and a June Bug.
