DESIGN Sometimes designers create and pitch concepts to clients that the clients just aren’t into. And sometimes those concepts are things that you, as the artist, fall completely in love with but end up having to let go. This is one of those designs – something someone else rejected but that I wasn’t willing to. I had lots of fun jamming out all the individual lines in the horse’s mane to mimic wild wind passing through and bringing it back to life.
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!
