Breakaway // Original linocut print
Materials: linoleum, ink, paper
Height: 32 centimeters
Width: 28 centimeters
'Breakaway' is an original linocut print designed, carved, and printed by myself with my own etching press. Variations between prints are minor. All prints have four ripped edges.
This print is a collaboration project between Iris Slappendel and me. Iris has her own brand of cycling clothing, www.i-ris.cc. I have worked with her before to design a cycling jersey but this time she asked me to make a design for a casual t-shirt. Iris is the executive director of an organisation called The Cyclists’ Alliance: ‘Run by former and current pros, The Cyclists’ Alliance provides holistic support to female cyclists during and after their careers. Funded purely by donations and subscriptions, our aim is to level the playing field and help the hard-working women of today’s peloton make a living from the sport. There’s a long way to go, but by striving for fairness, we will create a brighter future for all.’
Iris asked five designers to work on creating five different t-shirts inspired by, and to support women’s cycling. They made fifty shirts of each design, €5 of every sold shirt will go to The Cyclists’ Alliance. All the rad shirts you can get at Iris’ shop.
I made a limited run of 50 linocut prints, and also €5 of every sold print I’ll donate to TCA.

Beautiful print! And fast shipping!
I am so happy with the purchase of this print!!! From ordering 2 weeks before Christmas (not smart on my part) to seeing how quickly the artist started the process of shipping and me actually receiving it on December 24th just in the "St. Nick of time" to surprise my bike loving husband...I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Very personal attention to detail, acknowledging emails rights away and sending some extra nice goodies to say how much my business was appreciated...will definitely order from Sue again!
Sue captures the soul of cycling in lino and ink. A thing of beauty. I bought two of her prints and those won't be the last to go onto my walls. Needless to say that the prints arrived carefully protected and in perfect condition.
I recently bought two prints from SuevanGageldonk. They're both super beautiful and in great quality. I can't wait to frame them!
