VW Camper (Lokta paper) - Little Original Linocut
'VW Camper' is from my range of 'Little Original Artworks' that will fit in an A5 photo frame or can be float mounted in a larger frame.
I don't think we could have fitted all our kids, dogs, bikes and canoes into one of these but we did spend most weekends pulling our touring caravan along the roads. Great holidays, many memories and the odd glass of wine!
The image for this one was created from a lino plate that I carved and then hand printed on my 100 year old vintage printing press.
The Lokta paper provides a wonderful texture, This acid free paper is one of the finest hand made papers in the world and provides an important source of income for rural communities in Nepal. It has a low environmental impact as the plant used for the paper pulp regrows from the same root system. It is dried outside and 'kissed' by the Himalayan sun.
I create a number of versions from each lino plate but each one is a little bit different as they are all done by hand and the paper also has variations due to the way it is made.
- These little originals are mixed media artworks that make lovely gifts.
- Approx paper size is 210 x 150 mm
