A hand printed linocut, printed by me, the artist, I print the linocut plate in a warm velvety black, adding a piece of a page from my old Artists Handbook, to the mug, in a technique called chine colle, where you collage the paper at the same time as you print the linocut.
This of course means that the mug will be different every time, I choose the pages carefully, so they are fun and go with my idea, that it's true, this is the FIRST day of the rest of your life!
If you are interested in printmaking, You can see me printmake in a gang of films, go to

"My life" is printed on a beautiful buttery piece of velvety Canson printmaking paper,
the image measures 15" x 11.5" (38 cm x 29 cm)
and paper is 16" x 21". (40 cm x 54 cm)
I have signed and numbered the print, it is a very short edition of 30 prints. Please note you may not receive the number seen in the photograph.

It'll come to you protected by tissuepaper and a cellophane sleeve so it arrives safely.
Please note that shipping is included in the price.
If you have any questions, just get in touch with me!
