The Lino and Woodcut Prints of Jeffrey Knopf.

Straight in to Cronkistadore number 2 this is pretty liberating drawing straight on to the block, with none of the hang ups of tracing .

So this Cronkistadore is finally cut, on embarking on this piece I placed the parameters of make it fucked up on myself.
I did not expect to encounter a major area of collapse the section on the right of the block is pretty much a mess due to the ply veneer hiding a big area of filler which crumbled and broke up areas of cutting.
These areas could not be saved thankfully this was a fun piece and not full of heavy detail.
On to the next piece .

I know for some the great punk wars of the late 70s to early 80s were fought to eradicate the world of such musical dinosaurs as Pink Floyd but I will hold my hands up and say that there is a time and place for everything.
Currently cutting to the groove of Pink Floyd Animals. Just remind me not to use shit wood again as the ply veneer is collapsing as I cut it so who knows how this will work out when it is printed.

Not the greatest printer but it is a start.

Say hi to my great new table in my studio/office, this is where I am going to start printing, 
It is higher than waste height and I am looking forward to getting a bit experimental. I can also use it for cutting. Yehawwwwww

Sometimes it is great to switch off the perfectionist button, and break out and get all hackie with a piece.
This is truly ugly and supper Cronky but I love it “so what my work is Dark,it is printed with black ink” yes I can do nice but it does not challenge me or the viewer grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

A couple of weeks ago I posted some pictures of he work of HAP Grieshaber. Since my first post I have obtained another more comprehensive book of his Woodcuts and paintings. Sadly the book is in German but the pictures are great, I love his simplicity of line and use of colour.
