Original Limited Edition Relief Print issued May 2017
Image size 4" high by 6" wide (100 mm by 150 mm)
This little print (4" x 6") was designed and cut as a warmup exercise for the
Burnaby Art Gallery commission. As well, it was done to test an oil-based
ink made in Wales that I hadn't used before, on a new block of linoleum,
to see how the ink handled and printed. The results were excellent. The
ink is formulated so that it can easily be cleaned up with soap and water, but
dries waterproof, which makes it ideal for my purposes.

The tugboat is the Seaspan Raven, seen loitering in English Bay offshore
from Stanley Park, waiting for the next bit of work to do.
The edition consists of 100 prints on Arches Text Wove paper, 120 gsm,
hand printed by the artist with Caligo Safe Wash Furnace Carbon Black
relief printing ink, using an antique nipping press. All prints are
editioned, titled, signed and dated by the artist in pencil.
