How to Draw for Linocut Printmaking

Nerd Time with Brianna

Linocut is how I define myself. It is my thing. I used to be a drawer (draftsperson? Terminology was half the problem) and I couldn’t imagine that linocut could give me the same freedom and nuance as drawing. 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.
