Harunobu inspired linocut print

4 Comments

Me and my team mates at work are in the process of organising a charity craft, cake and plant fair. All proceeds from the fair will be donated to two cancer charities nominated by a colleague who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer. The fair isn’t until the 16th August but I thought I’d better start making some items to sell. I’m hoping to create a range of items (time permitting!) but thought I’d start with a linocut print.

This print is based on a Harunobu print of the courtesan Shiratama. I’m planning it as three colour print, but so far have only completed the black / outline layer. Below is a test print of the initial work.
