I have Jeannine of Saylor Made to thank for the inspiration behind this notebook. Jeannine had commented on Twitter that she liked the Cassette blank tape and wondered if I had a camera one too. I didn't, but it was such a great idea that it suddenly became a top priority!
Here's how I went about it.
I prepared the lino with my design. Sometimes pencil lines are sufficient, however, this was late at night so it was best to redraw it with a fine felt tipped pen.
With the carving finished, it was time for the first print. I love this moment for the surprise that it holds.
Rolling on the ink. I start to get a better idea of how the image will look printed.
Each new linocut gets printed directly into my art journal. I could see at this stage that there were a few more cuts required, but I'm happy with the overall result.
Finally satisfied with the design I was keen to print on the Moleskine Notebooks. These 2 designs are now available in a set or individually here.
