This little lion is a five-colour Gocco print, hand-printed using three individual screens on my little Japanese Gocco PG11. I was feeling inspired after browsing through some of my favourite children’s books when I decided to draw this lion. I purposely chose a 1950’s-feel colour pallet reminiscent of those found in the brilliant illustrations of the Little Golden Books. The bold red “Roar” underneath him is a little touch of irony, as this cute lion looks as though he’d start purring loudly before breaking out into a fearsome roar!

This is one of a limited edition of 112 prints. Each print in this series will vary slightly due to the process of hand printing, making each print truly unique. Gocco prints have a charming naïve characteristic to them that sets them apart from other forms of printmaking. Gocco prints look really special up on your wall or propped-up on a shelf – like a miniature masterpiece. Once framed, they also make a perfect little gift – a really affordable way to give an original work of art! I like to print my Gocco prints on 5”x7” paper so that they can be either cropped into with a 6”x4” mount (matte) or else framed at 5”x7” with a white border.

Image Size: 3 7/8” x 5 2/8” (97mm x 134mm)
Paper Size: 5” x 7” (127mm x 178mm)
Paper: Natural white acid free, age resistant 190gsm Hahnemuhle Nostalgie
Ink: Riso inks

Each print has been individually signed, numbered and dated in pencil by the artist (that’s me!!)

This print comes in a sealed cello bag with board backing and is posted flat in a protective board-backed envelope

P.S. Please note, the props shown in the photo above are not included in this sale (I could never sell my lovely Roberts Radio!!)
