I am proud to announce the winner of the “Spot the Particularly Annoying Yet Somehow Funny Typo” award – my good friend Deanna! Congratulations, Deanna! You are the only person to notice that usually you spell ‘Spontaneous’ with a ‘t’ in the middle. I’m not entirely sure what Sponaneous ice cream is but I do know I am currently very amused by my silly mistake. I also like that no one else appears to have noticed so maybe I can still use this lino cut. I think I will frame it and hang it on my wall as a personal reminder to check my spelling FIVE times instead of just four.

I finished my second linocut today and took it for a test print.

First you take the lino

paint

Then you add some paint.

Et voilà!

I am still working on my paint levels and pressure adding skills but I am pleased with the image. I think it looks delicious…
