Linocut demo: Laughing Gull

This past weekend's "Wildlife Art and Wine" event at The Wildlife Experience in Denver was amazing! About 500 people came out for the evening, pretty spectacular for a first time exhibition. The show continues through January 5, 2014.

I was one of eight artists who gave short demonstrations during the event– I printed the final color on this small linocut of a laughing gull. At each stage I pulled one print from the run to help explain the process... here are all six steps shown together:
