So this is what I've been working on recently: an edition of 25 prints (linocut and chine colle) for a print exchange (20:20, which I'm doing through Red Hot Press). It's based on some reading around the origins of Beelzebub - apparently he shares some homology with a Greek momentary deity called Myiagros, who was invoked to order the flies from your offerings to Zeus, so that you would win more favour. I made a Pinterest album documenting my progress as part of the workings, and finally printed the last of the edition today. I have 32 workable prints, but as I have to add linework by hand (?maybe), that may all change!

Wow, impressive (even though creatures with 6 or more legs are not my cup of tea).
What are you going to do with them?

They are for a print exchange. basically lots of studios gat their members to each make an edition of 25 prints, one of which will go into a series of boxed sets of prints for that studio. this happens at many studios, who submit to a central organiser. The central organiser then uses these box sets to make a huge number of randomised sets of 20 different prints, which get sent out to every participant. So in return for my 25 prints, I'll get back 25 different ones from studios all over the country. They hand them out at a kind of tea party at our studio, which leads to a frenzy of print swapping between participants :D

hard work, but lots of fun.
