As we all know, there is always a first time for everything and I've only gone and done two riso prints. Let me tell you - they are beautiful. I think I am converted. I spend so long in the act of drawing for my images, you can spend days or even weeks on a piece of work which can then come to represent a 'time' in your life - even within only a small section of time things happen around you, what you watch or listen to becomes part of how a drawing grows. To then see an image transformed by a print process adds a layer of magic that can't be digitally manufactured. You can get close but there is nothing quite like the real thing.

The good folk at Holodeck in Birmingham helped me through the steps of this crazy brave new world of printing with its offset overlaps and layering of colour
