Ok, I won't bother with the whole Happy New Year thing - it's unbelievably late for all that nonsense. Nor will i apologise for blatant lack of posting...but i have an alibi: my new printing press - guarda! che bella!! ( no idea if a press is male or female - it's just a bloody lovely thing).
Consequently, I have been completely absorbed in learning how best to use it, experimenting with different methods and inks, papers etc. since 2012 began. Here are a couple of results - interestingly, the ink seems to cover better on cheap paper (Eg, the paper bag from the bakery) than on expensive, heavy paper....for the record, these are all lino cuts/prints...
