Robin Linocut Two Colour Print

 

Robin Linocuts by Julie Gough

For one of the first times that I’ve attempted a two colour print I think this one of a Robin
came out pretty well! I started by drawing the robin onto greaseproof paper and transferred
the main shape onto one piece of lino and the red breast onto a smaller piece. I then cut
out the red first as it was easiest and checked that it printed okay. When I did the same with
the main body of the Robin it looked a little bit dull (image 4) and so I added more and
more detail before I was happy with the print. For the final print I printed the red breast
first before printing the black over the top. Looks very festive on my mantlepiece!

Logo Design for James Purvis

front

Today I was able to create a logo for a friend who made both my engagement ring, and my wedding ring. We started with a vague idea that he wanted an ‘arts + crafts’ feel to the logo, and I drew out the letters for him adding extras like the dot and double lines in the ‘A’ as I crafted the text. I came up with the logo above, and the business card design below. In addition to this, I put together a simple wordpress site which can be seen at www.jamespurvis.co.uk.

I’m not really sure why they all ended up looking so unhappy/shellshocked!
