Jonathan Ashworth "Swing Part One" woodcut print artist proof and signed
Image: 15 x11cm
We are swinging into Autumn with is charming wood engraving the young artist and RCA grad Jonathan Ashworth, it’s so refreshing to see someone utilising such an age-old method of printing in such a modern style. His illustrations are sweet depictions of sleepy boys, loving couples, scrunched up duvets and old-fashioned bake houses and are printed using blocks of wood, carved out by the man himself. What’s so cool about woodblock carvers is that they could so easily just draw these images with pencils or pens, but they don’t: they go head-first and full throttle into the hard way without a second thought, and the results are as spectacular as these.
