Anatomy of a Linocut by Bill Fick from Jim Haverkamp on Vimeo.
I discovered this yesterday, and wow, it's so inspiring! I love the sounds of the ink on the slab in the otherwise quiet studio. Certainly makes me want to get back to my languishing carving tools.
I really want one of those awesome machines now... I print small, with hand rollers. What is his gadget of awesomeness called?
Celeste - Do you mean the etching press. They really do make printing fun.
Thanks for sharing this! I've never seen a linocut that large! Looks like fun. I loved the large press but would miss the fun of cranking it through myself! :)
They don't call it the Black Art for nothing.
I've just finished cutting a piece of lino that was 700mm by 900mm, it was a labour of love, and then printing it was so so soooooo satisfying, it's a different experience i found going big. I really enjoyed watching this video, i really appreciate getting a glimpse at an artist process. and technique. You can check out the large linocut i was doing if you like via my blog https://instagram.com/p/1bXIATvQzr/
