Bill Flick at work

Found a little video of Bill Flick cutting and printing a large linoleum block. Sit back and enjoy.

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
