IF.Contagious

Infected, contaminated, smitten…LOVE!
Illness, disease, colds, germs…BUGS!


I made the printing blocks from rubbers cut with a scalpel and a lino cutting tool (spot the mistake), printed, scanned and colours manipulated in Photoshop…


… Messy but good fun!

Whoops, I've forgot to flip the text before too.

Fantastic love bug print. Eraser stamps are so much fun. I made an Astro Boy stamp a while back, and then everything ended up getting stamped. I can't be trusted with stamps.

You know, I have done that many times--excited to carve a word and ending up writing it on the lino without reversing it. Great piece!
