Guys, be sure to visit Anne Desmet's show at the Cornerstone Gallery (details)and the Goya and 'American Scene' print shows in Manchester this month and next. They're all inspirational.
Here's a link for Anne Desmet's show http://www.artinliverpool.com/index.php/maingalleries/cornerstone. Very playful, all underpinned with technical brilliance viz wood engraving and relief printmaking in general. Wood engravings on razor shells, woven prints.. prints layered in and under glass. On tiles...
