DESIGN Like many artists in the midst of COVID-19, sheltering at home pushed me to return to some old work, create some new work, and gain some perspective on my own practice. The art here came from an old drawing I had started and never finished, but that I uncovered while cleaning out and organizing my home workspace towards the start of the shelter-in-place. The imagery is about what matters most to me as an artist: my tools, and the ones I love who inspire me to work, work hard, and work with heart.
Like all Jimmy Paints items, this artwork is designed & handprinted with love from my San José printshop / studio.
DETAILS Artwork approx. 8” x 10”, printed on paper that’s 9” x 12”. 50 lb. Blick Masterprinter paper.
If you’re unfamiliar with lino printing, it refers to a process that starts with carving a design into a linoleum block, layering ink on top of the carved design, and then printing the relief image onto a surface – paper, fabric, etc.
And please note: the photos you see are of a test print that is intended to help you clearly see the design / image you’re purchasing (plus another of the original lino block I carved into); note the specific details provided here regarding the size of the artwork, size of the paper, & paper style. The artwork you receive will be hand-printed to order!
