New Year 2023

Happy New Year!

I make New Year cards most years to send to friends and family. In recent years they have been prints: woodcuts or linocuts. This year it was a collage. My card this year is made of marbled paper and a kinetic band of people. The people are printed from carved rubber stamps. The concept was to show “through it all together”: people going under and over and through.

New Year Card 2023

Here is a short video to show how the centre band moves:

Here are the rubber stamps which made the people and the dogs. I cut them from a large pencil eraser.

Rubber stamps made from pencil eraser. They are each about 1cm high.

Here are some snaps of work in progress.

The marbled paper is from a pack of offcuts from the Wyvern Bindery. There are several different designs. The white card is watercolour paper from Jackson Art, cut down, with the offcuts used to make the moving band of people. I made about 45.

Here are cards from some previous years.

Happy New Year 2023!
