Artist's description:

No crown jewels were harmed during the production of this print;o))

WHAT IS A LINOCUT?: linocuts layered on top of each other, creates a lush contemporary feel to this handprinted linocut, I have cut out the fish shapes and the swimmer, and ink them all up separately and them lay them out on my press and put the paper on top to print the first round, I then print a pvc plate with a wavy pattern drypointed and inked up in a rich oriental blue on top, giving that feel of water.
Using this time consuming technique also means that no 2 prints are alike, making your linocut a truly original print. You can commission me to print in colors of your choice, just talk to me!

If you would like to see how a lino is made and printed,
go to: www.youtube.com and search under my name, in the movie Lino Mix and Match I show you how this kind of printmaking is done.

SIZE: I printed "The Danger of being Male" on a piece of
lovely warm white Fabriano printmaking paper,
the actual image is 20" x 12" (50cm x 30 cm)
and the paper is 24" x 15" (60 cm x 38 cm)

EDITION: I have signed, titled and numbered the print, that comes in an edition of 75. Please be aware I can't guarantee you receive the number in the photo.

SHIPPING: Your linocut is mailed to you from my studio in Denmark, protected by tissuepaper and cellophane, it comes with a flier explaining how and what a linocut is.
