Linocut 4 - Wen Jiabao

China's Premier Wen Jiabao is this week's illusytration in linocut. This time i experimented with more colours. Experience gained: it helps not to cut the linos (as i did) in smaller sizes, if their surfaces are equal they'll guide you when applying the next colour.

Trial and terror:
I couldn't make a bigger mistake... the photos taken are actually mirrored (in an attempt to fool you), since i forgot to mirror the image before tracing it on linoleum... : (
...all the linocuts are not mirrored -aka are all wrong- and the final Athens Plus image used is actually the finished work scaned and mirrored to fit print... stupid enough?!

Read about it here (Nick Malkoutzi's blog), and here (AthensPlus).
