Art Description

Printmaking: Linocuts on Paper.

Image 2.375 x 1.75 inches, sheet 6 x 7 inches

This is a miniature version of my linocut of the same name - with the addition of my dog Buddy. Like the larger one, this is a 3-color linocut: black, white and orange.

The Criswell Linocut
I began these experiments with linoleum back in 1999. Although these prints may resemble etchings, drypoints, lithographs or some strange hybrid, they are true relief prints, printed in two or more colors from linoleum blocks. I didn't invent this technique - Picasso and his printer Arnera did - but I've adapted it to my own purposes and, since nobody else in the world is doing it as far as I know, I'm calling it "The Criswell Linocut." The two most important things about this technique are that (1) I cut the designs with a drypoint needle and (2) that I print the dark color first and the light color second. This enables me to draw my image directly on the key block, just as I would draw with a pen on paper, rather than cut away everything BUT the image as in traditional relief printmaking.
