A new monochrome linocut print, carved and printed last weekend and finally cut to size and framed this week. It’s sized 5″ x 7″ and printed on a pale purple card.

The image is based on a photo of Louise Brooks. Brooks fascinates me. Her life story is a perfect tragic tale, of a brilliant actress whose career was ruined by the studio system and her own unbending personality. I find that photographs of her convey a sense of that forceful personality, as well as her beauty.
