And So You See My Little Fish
from the book Little Red Snapperhood
12 x 19 inches
Edition of 10
Sizes listed are of the linocut images themselves; I leave an additional white border of paper on all sides.
My linocuts are printed on cotton rag paper the old-fashioned way: I carve with knives and gouges to create my imagery in slabs of linoleum. Then I roll ink over the surface, lay cotton paper on top, and crank the block through my etching press. I repeat this process for each impression in the edition, which means: If an image is in an edition of 10, I do this 10 times! After the prints dry, I generally hand-paint them, often with many layers of color, making each print a unique work of art.
