Dance With An Old Man

On first glance, there may seem to be almost nothing happening in this print, so little colour change, so few gestures, but this is deceptive – every tiny element becomes enormously important because of that and the print can succeed or fail on the most incredibly small amount of surplus ink, or under-/over-wiping of a plate which has to seamlessly fade into another colour or shade of blue.
At the outset, I never imagined the diversity or possible problems in realizing these prints – they’re all so individual and very challenging.
It’s been exciting and refreshing to be surprised by working in an unfamiliar medium with images I thought I knew inside out, which have actually grown into being unexpectedly new characters.
