No, no, don’t panic, it’s only another of my decalcomania monoprints dear reader – just black acrylic paint on white drawing paper, this one is probably about 16″ x 12″. I see that it is dated 2010 – doesn’t time fly!
If you’d like to know a bit more about the way I do my version of decalcomania you could have a look at an earlier post on the subject, it also tells you how you could try this form of fine art printmaking yourself – it really is quite easy! (Decalcomania)

‘I don’t know Professor, but just look at them squirm!…’
‘They squirm like worms Brownlow! Worm squirms…’
‘Indeed sir, writhing too… writhing and squirming…’
‘I think a couple of them are gesturing too…’
‘Hm… yes…’
‘One would imagine Brownlow, that if one intended to handle one of these… these… for some reason… one might need to use some sort of tongs.’
‘Do you have tongs Professor?’
‘Of course not Brownlow – not with me, not on my person, you fool – I have racks of tongs at home of course’
‘Of course you do sir…
‘What’s that pasta… you know, that flat pasta, what’s it called?’
‘What?… Flat pasta?… Oh, yes Brownlow, fettuccine…’
‘Yes, sir…’
‘Hm… You know Brownlow, I’m starting to feel a little peckish…’
