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.

New Tiki Print

Hi All,

I’ve been working on a new version of the print which was giving me trouble a few weeks ago – see previous post for more and I finally had some success with it.

I had to cut a new block (in lino this time) and buy some new paper (Zerkall).

Inking the block…

Here it is on the press…
