Linocuts with my son

Unfortunately I didn’t get to draw much in December but I did make 2 lino prints. I joined my son while he was making his, now traditional, linocuts for Christmas gifts. He managed to make 2 this year, both in an edition of 20 so there are plenty for gifts in the coming year.

I also made 2 prints. It was fairly obvious to print some Christmas cards, but from decades of experience I know that my intentions and actual actions often are miles apart when it comes to Christmas cards. Therefore I decided to make a card suitable for all occasions – just in case. I used one of my drawings from last summer as a template for the linocut.

I also cut a plate last year while keeping my son company but never pulled any prints from it. Since the red ink was already out, I had to print some cards with this one too. Although my wife didn’t think this was suitable for Christmas cards…

Well, once again I didn’t managed to send any Christmas cards this year so I guess they’ll do fine as new year cards.
