If you’ve been reading this blog a long time, you may remember that I used to do a lot of printing with a little Japanese machine called the Print Gocco. I hadn’t used it for ages for one reason and another, but earlier this year, I couldn’t find a birthday card that I liked to send to my eldest son so I dusted it off and did a lot of printing.
It was nice to get it out again after so long.
I decided to print a photo of Newport since he had been away for nearly 2 years and I thought (probably wrongly!) that he might like to see it.
This is the one I chose. I did a 3 colour separation and printed 3 screens in halftone and this one of them. It’s not one of the best as I put the ones I printed on folded cards in a safe place (ha – too safe!).
Of course I couldn’t stop there! I had taken a photo of some phoneboxes and a postbox in Cheltenham one year which I thought would be a good complement to my London bus prints.
It was fun printing these in various colours.
I got rather carried away by the end … of course there’s no point printing if you’re going to stop after one or two!
