not that kind of seal

Here's how I make a linocut:
1. Block out a piece of soft lino in a single colour with a giant poster pen, and sketch the design onto it.

2. Cut the design, following the drawn lines/areas using specialist tools (then wash off all the ink).

3. Roll ink on a glass plate to get the right consistency and coat the plate thoroughly. Flip the plate onto the prepared paper carefully and roll over (yeah, I need to get an actual print-making press). Reveal!
