Print making workshop

This giant print was produced in a Print workshop I was involved in, led by Andy Parker. We each worked in pairs and were encouraged to try something new on a massive scale and to consider repetition. By carefully hacking away at a large piece of corrugated card me and Jenny inked up the monster and placed a giant roll of paper over the top to slide, roll and skate around on. This is the outcome, with a subtle addition of string to highlight interesting shapes and link the repeated prints together.

Below is the corrugated card. I love printmaking as a process in making my Illustrations and this workshop has sparked ideas of ways I could further this in the future. Interesting what you can do with throw away items/packaging.
