JAMES JOYCE, portrait of the artist.
Growing up in Sandycove I often spent summer days playing on the beach in the shadow of the Martello tower mentioned in the opening chapter of Ulysses. This James Joyce print is another of many attempts I've made over the years to depict this extraordinary writer and person.
This print is an original image, hand cut from linoleum, hand inked and hand printed on my home made press. The limited edition of 6 prints measures approximately 12cm by 18cm with a 2.5cm border and is printed using solvent Free oil based inks and printed on Fabriano paper.
Due to the nature of lino printing small variations may occur both in the colour and detail, this is exactly how I like it making each print genuinely unique.
