Printing Process Video

I am very happy to announce that my newest print Envy For The Living sold out in just 24 hours! It sold out so fast that I didn’t have a chance to blog this printing process video, which was expertly made by Nick JS Thompson.

I’d like to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who bought one, and I’m sorry to anyone who missed out. My next print release won’t be for a while, but if you’d like to be the first to hear of any new releases, please sign up to my mailing list at the top right of this page.

I spent days drawing and carving the image into a sheet of birch, and weeks carving out the negative space. I am very grateful for the print studio at the university where I lecture (University of the Arts London) allowing me to use this incredible Columbian press from the early 1900s.

Envy For The Living – NEW PRINT RELEASE (now sold out)

It has been four years since I released my last woodcut, which proved to be my most popular print to date. I’m very excited to announce that my newest woodcut ENVY FOR THE LIVING is available NOW!

ENVY FOR THE LIVING is a woodcut, which has been hand drawn, cut, and printed by myself, using a Columbian printing press from the early 1900s.

It is printed on the highest quality Norfolk 210gsm Cartridge paper, using archival oil-based printmaking inks.
In a limited edition of only 15

Within the print, I have included background references to Henri Matisse, Vanitas Painting, Ancient Greek sculpture, Piet Mondrian, and Bas Jan Ader. As usual, the title is taken from a work of classic literature, this time from Lev Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina.
