Latest effort

This is an intaglio bleed print from a shellac burn on an aluminium plate.

Maybe more work will emerge this coming week. Here's hoping.

Wood engraving

Commenced work on a wood engraving today - my first one, apart from a quicky at a David Frazer workshop a year ago - Judging by my progress so far, this one should be ready for the Wintergarden exhibition........... in 2014 !!!

Go Geelong Received this link to another blog concentrating on Geelong/Greater Barwon region. It looks wonderful and it seems things are really starting to move. After the frustrations of trying to acquire a physical space for artists, now the internet comes to the rescue.

Where is everyone?

Have been revisiting Collagraph this week with mixed results so far. Anyhoo, thought I would put up an image in the hope that others might also.

This was inked up in the Brenda Hartill tradition of using rubs, which is a viscosity printing technique.

Hope to see some more work from you all. Cheers G.

Very nice John. from E.

Latest linocut

Howdy folks - just to prove I've done some printing.... here's a new linocut that I finished on Sunday. The image is lo res and has an ugly strip on it because it was too big for my scanner, and I had to do it in two halves and splice them together in photoshop (Yes, I ripped off the painting that I entered in the Art Is exhibition).

Printmakers@Geelong Exhibition GAS 2011

Hello interested parties,

The whole of the Shearers' Arms Gallery is now booked for 12th September - 2nd October, 2011 inclusive. The Gallery Hanging committee will hang the works. Will keep you posted on the cost of the entire gallery for that time so you will get an idea of each individual's costs. At present don't know whether a commission is to be paid. Will keep on top of this and let you know as soon as I do.
