Our Designs & Process

WHAT IS A LINOCUT?

THE INSPIRATION FOR MY WORK IS ALL AROUND ME. FROM SQUEALY OUR MASCOT, HIS FRIENDS IN THE WOODS, IN THE WATER OR ON THE BEACH, AND THE FURRY COMPANIONS WHO HOP ONTO MY LAP AT ODD TIMES, I FIND THE IDEAS THAT LEAD TO PORKCHOPSTICK STUDIO DESIGNS.  ONCE THE CONCEPT TAKES SHAPE, I SKETCH IT TO ITS FINAL FORM-BACKWARDS. THEN ITS TIME TO MOVE TO THE LINOCUT STAGE.

LINOCUT IS A PRINTMAKING TECHNIQUE, IN WHICH A SHEETOF LINOLEUM IS CUT INTO WITH A SHARP KNIFE OR TOOLS. THE SHEET IS INKED WITH A ROLLER (called a brayer), AND THEN IMPRESSED ONTO PAPER BY HAND. THE IMAGES ARE THEN SCANNED TO BE SIZED AND DESIGNED FURTHER FOR VARIOUS UNIQUE ITEMS. THIS PROCESS TAKES SEVRAL PROOFS, TIME AND TOOLS, NOT TO MENTION PLANNING!
