  • 135/365 LINOCUT! This is a special daily drawing for me because I’ve wanted to do lino for FOREVER. (Also this one took me 2 days to do.) I’ve been putting it off because of blah excuses blah but since coming back from Iceland with @lightgreyartlab I felt inspired to go for it. 
I used one of the illos I made for my Iceland zine (which I also have to make a post about soon) as a starting off point. It’s called Söl, a seaweed native to Iceland...& is super tasty too! I figured it was a simple enough design to start with...but boy was I proven wrong FAST! All those squiggly lines were toooough 😂.
I felt very out of my element with this one because I haven’t done lino since primary school, I didn’t have a reference point on how much ink I should use, the process etc. 🤷‍♀️ I just kind of jumped on in. So I learned a bunch doing this first one, like don’t have so many delicate lines fool, walk before you run girl 🙃!!! I was a biiiiiiit ambitious but I think it turned out ok in the end ☺️!
I definitely want to explore more Lino things, maybe add some colour or layers...but all in good time, I should probably focus on practicing my line cutting first. It’s all about those fundamentals!!!
.
OH ALSO if any of you fine people would like to buy this design 🥰 let me know and I might do a limited run of these 6x4” mini lino prints...possibly even with some fun hand drawn embellishments 👀✨

How does your studio/workplace look?⁠
Right now my studio is a corner of a room in my house, with things in boxes and piles of stuff that I’m trying to keep as organised as possible. I’d love to try out a studio set-up some day and see what that’s like. ☺⁠
⁠
What tools do you use?⁠
Recently I started drawing digitally, mostly for fun, and I’m currently doing a daily drawing project called 365 Drawings (#365drawingsCC). I started it as a way to keep creativity going last year when I was in a bit of an art rut. I also needed to give myself an excuse to learn new mediums, and have fun and relax while making new things. I began with digital drawings on Procreate, mostly because I wanted to learn how to draw digitally. I’ve done a few things with posca pens and colouring pencils too. It’s a good opportunity to allow myself to not have to make everything perfect, because I only have a few hours to do it. And that makes it fun.⁠
