Anybody do this?
I have a design of a prisoner! I really like it.
I've spent all day trying to copy Eric Gill designs too, but couldn't draw any to my satisfaction.
DONT STAB YOURSELF IN THE FINGERS IT REALLY HURTS!
I'll try my best not to.
REALLY satisfying about carving lino blocks.
If you have a hair dryer use it on the lino for a minute or so until it softens a bit, this makes it much easier to carve.
Also as somebody said BE VERY CAREFUL! its really easy to slip and get your fingers. Always carve away from you (easier said than done I find)
Just make sure you don't get too into the Eric Gill stuff that you don't become him!
He was well mental.
"Gill's devout Roman Catholicism did not prevent him from sexually abusing his own children, having an incestuous relationship with his sister or performing sexual acts on his dog."
What was it about the Arts & Crafts movement and nutters? Lots of his prints are really really erotic...
