A hand carved, hand printed linocut of a Lion. In the past I have shied away from this subject matter, due to the amount of carving required to do it justice (so much fur…!). But I took the leap in early 2020 and here is the end result. This was printed over two months, allowing the time to carve the detail in the fur that it deserves.
This has been printed using a single plate of lino, and the detail has been achieved by reducing the lino for each layer (5 in total), so no others can be made, making the small edition very collectible.
Image Size :: 40cm x 40cm
Paper Size :: 53cm x 49cm
From an edition of 15
Hand printed on good quality 165gsm Zerkall acid free paper, using oil based inks.
It comes numbered and signed by me on the front.

Extraordinary linocuts inspired by the artist’s travels and the local environment
Hello! I am Wayne Longhurst, a linocut artist based in sunny (apparently) Worthing.
I have been creating linocut prints for a few years now, teaching myself when I first heard about the medium 6 years ago (yep, I hadn’t heard about it until I was in my early 30’s, I guess it skipped my generation at school). I immediately took to it, and was soon smitten with it, to the stage where I am lucky enough to have my own home studio.
As I live near the Sussex Downs national park and the seaside, a lot of my work is inspired by what I see on my travels, including trees up on the downs and seaside staples, like seagulls, beach huts and ice-creams.
Always wishing to challenge myself, I’m constantly on the lookout for the next print which will push my boundaries even further. My latest set of prints (my animal prints and Schrodingers Crater) certainly did that! I wanted them to be photo realistic, and to achieve that they were printed using the reduction technique, with up to 8 layers….these very nearly broke me…! But I’m still here! And thinking of the next print….
Thanks for looking!
