“Tread lightly” reduction linocut

by Matthew Carey Simos

This print was done for the 20:20 Print Exchange with Hot Bed Press. It was completed in mid october and I cannot wait for my share of the 20 different prints!

It is a four colour reduction linocut, printed with oil based inks on Saunders Waterford 190 gsm paper. It is a limited edition of 25 prints and paper dimensions are 20 x 20 cm with the image being slightly smaller.

I am happy to be doing fantasy-themed work again and I am glad the linocut method does it justice. Similar work will follow in due time.

Although I have given the full edition to the print exchange organisers, I have kept a few artist proofs for myself. I will be deciding what to do with them soon! :P
