For week two of THE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF MARY JANE MOSQUITO, I am posting the completed linoleum carving, shown in progress last week. Linocut is a relief printing technique similar to woodcut. The parts that are carved out are negative spaces and the remaining raised surface is the art. This example has been rolled with black ink ready for printing. Next week I'll post the printed paper, a mirror image of the scene above.
This wonderful cabaret is written by Canadian playwright and musician, Tomson Highway. It is due to be published in the fall of 2016 by Fitzhenry & Whiteside.
I am an illustrator with many years of experience in publishing, editorial, advertising and corporate. My illustration technique is linocut, printed and scanned with color applied in Photoshop. I love mixing old school and digital technologies and now am learning to paint in oils and with a wacom tablet. I'll post my learning curve here. Variety, the spice of life!
