Recent Work: "Freshly Picked"

I started my working year with a large illustrating job. This was to engrave nineteen illustrations for "Freshly Picked" by Jojo Tulloh. Many of the images were set in allotment gardens and so this was pleasant and sympathetic work for me

Here are the nineteen blocks. I will try to print a group of them together on the larger Albion to make an image the size of a small poster, possibly with some wood type text.

Here are some proofs printed from the blocks:
I will be choosing some of the images to edition in the summer. I will announce them here when I add them to my main website. I have to confess that there is a lot of new work that needs to be added to it.

Very beautiful. If I may make one observation though. I think you 'overcut' the tones - espesially in the dark areas. As a result, the images loose a bit of clarity because the dark tones aren't dark enough. Less (cutting/texture), I woud say is more. The mid/dark to light tones are beautifully handled.
Your work reminds me a little of Richard Shirley Smith's, I'm sure you know his work.
Keep up the great work!!!

Many thanks for your comments. Witold - you would have to see the originals - these terrible scans do not do them justice - also - these were cut for reproduction, rather than for art and I had to avoid large areas of dense black.
