Nerd Time with Brianna

The first time I carved a reduction linocut was a revelation. It was also the first time I printed a linocut from a Vandercook letterpress, so the revelations multiplied over one another to create a printmaking experience that has shaped my artistic practice ever since. Yeah. I love it.

For anyone who is curious about what exactly you do with a degree in fine art, and especially the people who are asked that question by well meaning but infuriating relatives

Penrose Press is a book arts practice by Brianna Tosswill in collaboration with various creatives in Canada. Its mandate is to present storytelling in beautiful, physical detail, and to amplify marginalized voices and perspectives. Art feeds empathy.

I've made some changes lately. Read about them here.

It took me years of dedicated practise to realize that there are techniques available to me in linocut that are unique and wonderful and better than drawing in certain respects. I’m here to share my most effective strategies with you so that you can have a similar experience and learn to love this medium like I do.
A start to finish tutorial on building a soft-cover book (with content!) that holds together forever and looks good doing it.

Linocut is a type of printmaking where you carve linoleum, yes, like the flooring material! And then make prints from your carving by rolling ink across the un-carved areas, and applying paper with pressure to transfer the ink.
