We've been exploring printmaking over the last few weeks and I have produced a couple of linocut prints I am quite happy with. This is taken from a photo of my youngest daughter Portia when she was attending a Disney premier. I love the original image because she has two huge family size boxes of popcorn in front of her and she's stuffing her face. It has a limited pallette of red, black, white and yellow and I knew it would make a nice print. It could be seen as my comment on consumerism and the cultural imperialism of America spearheaded by the Disney corporation... but really its just a cute image of one of my kids.
