Bird Boy

Worked on the double sheet lino cut today. Had problems with image registration, but decided in the end that life is too short to be a technical printmaker. A little bit of rock n roll didn't do anyone any harm after all! The images reads quite well across both sheets so that's good enough.

I'm slightly troubled by my recent obsession with bird images and haven't been happy with the way they've worked out. I decided to make a torn lino shape which is an aproximation of a bird-form, but could just as easily be a bin bag. And after railing against ambiguity in an earlier blog I'm much happier with the ambiguous form in this image!
