Putting together a design - 'Wild Things'

Here is a little insight into the Hiccups printed bed linen designs. Each print is hand painted into a 64cm rotary repeat, with separate pillowcase and reverse coordinate art work. Depending on the intricacies of the design, the finished artwork can take up to two weeks to complete, a much slower process than designing on the computer!

The finished product!

A mixture of watercolour / gouache painting and linocut printing were used to create this artwork - I love to use a combination of techniques in the design process.
