Working on Prints

I’ve been working on some new print ideas lately. In the gallery below you can see the initial sketch for a lino cut. Then someone drew my attention to an invitation for submissions for a screen print. The print can use up to 3 colours so I scanned it and work on some colour ideas. Having settled on 3 colours I decided to digitally trace the sketch to create the final design.

New Tiki Prints

Hi All,
here are a couple of new prints I’ve been working on, once again inspired by the Marupai magical charms of Papua New Guinea.
