Oh yes, that lino print…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s rather unpleasant sounding British place name is Whipsnade. (W)

I recall, few days ago dear reader, showing you a photograph of the top of the little bench in my workshop with a few pencils, rubbers, and couple of drawings on it – one drawing was a rough idea for a lino print, and the other (half done) was the same thing scaled up to the actual size of the lino block. (Click here for another look!) I always do my prints on the same size block, they go so nicely on A4 paper, and blocks that size are readily available at the one art supplies shop in town.
‘Why don’t you branch out and work on a larger scale Dave?’
No, no, the A4 size stores away so very easily, and the frames for them, should you wish to frame one, are a popular size, and are cheap, and I do like uniformity; I picture them all lined up in identical black frames in a long row on an otherwise blank gallery wall – somewhere, exotic.
‘Like Whipsnade perhaps?’
Yes indeed!
Anyway, I think I mentioned in my earlier post that some of the devices (Device, that’s a heraldic term, isn’t it?) in the design would have to go, and have now gone, they just didn’t ‘work’, so they went – to be replaced by… Well just have a look below! Compare and contrast, as they used to say in school exam questions.

Yes, those silly white ‘reflection’ stripes had been removed by council employees working overtime in the night, and they also managed to unhook those ridiculous cascading triangles from the sky and have taken them off in handcarts to landfill.
So, bright and early this morning the folk of the town came out with their children to admire the freshly dotted rising sun – oh, just look at it balloon! I think it’s going to be a nice day.
Hey, you kids! Stay away from that wobbly ‘X’ thing, it doesn’t look at all safe!…
