Secret 7

Here's my Secret 7 submission from the exhibition a few weeks ago.  For this years effort I decided I'd try a linocut reduction print.  Which was quite ambitious given I've only ever done one before and it went pretty badly.  Plus working on a blank sleeve I only had one shot.  What follows is some work-in-progress pics of the lino from pencil sketch to being printed and also the finished sleeve in the hands of the eventual buyer.

The artwork was inspired by Massive Attack's 'Karmacoma' though admittedly it's more ambiguous than I usually work.  The square frame was a nod to the cover of Blue Lines.
