Two Hedgehogs make their way, rustling and snuffling through a thicket. There is an autumnal feel in the air and the ground is strewn with yellowing oak leaves...
This limited edition risograph print has been made from a collage I created by cutting up proofs of different linocut prints, and arranging them to make a new artwork. I'm always amazed at how different my prints look when they're re-arranged as collage - and I love the story-telling possibilities! The collaging process is painstaking, highly complex and lengthy, resulting in a one-off piece. I wanted to create prints from this piece, and to be able to offer them more affordably than I would a one-off collage - and these are the result - I hope you like them! :)
I have wanted to work with Risograph for a long while, as linocut prints lend themselves so well to being reproduced in this way. Using a similar principle to silk screen printing, the riso print is built up with layers of spot colour, applied through paper stencils by a risograph machine. The result of this is that the layers of each print are registered very slightly differently - giving the print a unique and almost "hand made" feel. Riso is an incredibly eco-friendly way of printing as the inks are soya-based and the papers are all recycled. Really, what's not to like?
