Sphynx Cat Geometric Goddess Occult LinoPrint in Turquoise/Teal and Gold
It’s been a while since I made a design especially for me as I had a few commissions on, and after a bit of searching through some motifs in the brain storage, I designed this piece. Using alchemical motifs, and lunar goddess imagery and originating as a line drawing, I carved this design onto a lino block and will be working with a few colour schemes, I will also make Turquoise/teal with gold outer halo, turquoise/teal mono, black and gold, black mono, red and gold and full colour. PLEASE NOTE: I am currently pretty much printing to order so there maybe a week in production before posting.£18.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
Here Be Monsters – Limited Edition – Hand printed & painted Linoprint
Inspired from reading some of the historical newspaper stories that can be found in The Pine Barren Institute’s “Monsters in Print” compiled by Adam Benedict, my psyche was visited by this Giant Sea Lady, gorging herself on boats and ships, crunching through bows and sterns on moonlit nights. Here Be Monsters!
Colours may differ slightly from the screen image and sister prints due to the nature of their production, (all hand finished and painted by me)£39.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
Season’s Beatings – Krampus – Gold & Red on Black
Have you been naughty or nice this year? You will know which should this fellow head your way, a lump of coal is the mildest punishment, a thrashing with a bundle of sticks let’s you know that thing you did was pretty bad, a ride in the basket shows that thing was truly unforgivable and you should prepare yourself for being feasted upon by St Nicholas’ hellish companion, the Krampus.
An Alpine Christmas figure of the devil variety, this one eats really naughty kids and serve as a deterrent for bad behaviour, a house visit from the Christmas saint and devil or parades still happen in areas of Austria, German and the Alps. I have made a making of this print for patrons on Patreon should this be of interest, find me under GurdyBird!
More colour combinations are on the way, red ink on white paper, black ink on red paper, and other possibilities! Black on white is available from this shop! Krampus is a way of life, so please bare with me for these variations.£24.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
The Witch – Full Colour Lino Print – Hand Coloured – Gold –
Inspired by the old woodcuts depicted the shenanigans of the sorts of witches found in old chapbooks, but coloured using similar colours found in illuminated manuscripts, with lustrous gold details. Surrounded by many eyes, possibly of spirits, familiars or supernatural agents. This was great fun to do, and is fairly dinky but striking.
Please be aware colours may differ slightly to this digital image.£18.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
Westward Leading – We Three Kings – Angel Flying a UFO – Lino print
A slight detour from the Devil work I do, ’ Westward Leading is taken from the Christmas Carol “We Three Kings” and I like the idea of the figures of angels and demons actually being aliens, so the thought of an angel landing in a spaceship made me consider why anyone would be scared seeing one in Biblical times. Wouldn’t you be? In this thought, this Angel is the “Star of Wonder”, leading the three wise men to Bethlehem, at the birth of Christ. The colour version has been lovingly hand painted in acrylic inks, paints and has a gorgeous shimmering gold finish, colours may not be exact to this image. It is also available in black and white in this shop as well as in Greeting Card form.£33.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
La Bruja – Full Colour – Limited Edition Hand-Painted Witch Linoprint
Inspired by historical imagery of witches and demons frolicking together, with illuminated manuscripts as another source of inspiration, I also like modern captures of unusual things caught on film, whether real or not or hereby unexplained, a video of something that looks like a stereotypically historical depiction of a witch caught my imagination and spurred on this image. As this video referred to what was captured in Spanish, “La Bruja”, I kept the title.
Also Available in black and white.£32.95 Sold by: Tarraway Hoofpress
