Italy Sketchbook

As promised, here's my favourites from my Italy sketchbooks.

I'll make another post about Italy with some photos and maybe some more sketches. This was long over-due. This trip was completely amazing and so beneficial to my artwork. I'm extremely glad I was able to go.

Here are two lino-prints that I created last year and never uploaded. While scanning these I remembered how much I enjoyed making them- cutting the lino black, while time consuming, was rhythmic and almost meditative. I'm still very happy with the result of these pieces and I plan to do more. The first piece is printed on regular card stock and the second is printed on this really great cotton-backed wood paper I found at a Curry's downtown.

Next post will contain sketches and photos from my trip to Italy in the summer!
