Plants and Leaves

In the middle of winter (although it doesn’t feel like that here in Austria at the moment) I wanted to remind myself of spring so I did these linocut prints on small postcards. The colour didn’t always print perfectly because I printed them without a press but I somehow like the transparency when the white of the paper shines through.

Printmaking Again

Since I haven’t done any prints for a long time I decided to make room on my desk and use it as a kind of printmaking studio (although a very small one…). I bought a good roller, new linocut colours and of course printing plates and started to carve. I just love the versatility of printmaking – you never really know what you get. You can print over a boring piece and suddenly it turns out to be really interesting. It’s just great!
