Tilly Jane Tee - Deep Heather Gray (Original Hand-Pulled Linoleum Block Shirt) 2018


This T-shirt is an original piece of art. Pacific Northwest Inspired. Designed and printed in Portland, Oregon.

I first designed and carved the linoleum block using different gouge tools. I then inked the block using a brayer and Gamblin's Portland Intense Black oil based ink. Yes, Gamblin named an ink after our city :) I'm a member of a lovely print cooperative called Flight 64 where I have access to a Charles Brand Press. Each tee is hand pressed and made with love (sometimes sweat, sometimes tears). I like the laborious, low-tech approach which gives the image a dynamic line quality. The finished shirt offers slight variations due to the ink consistency and pressure. A block printed image will retain a richness in color wash after wash. The process video can be found on my instagram feed @Lakeeffectpress.
