simon smith's Profile
Leeds-based but Leicester-born, I'm a freelance illustrator and do-er of generally artistic stuff.
Back at the start of 2010 I set myself the challenge of documenting every bus trip I take during the year with a lino print.
I was getting into a bit of a rut in my working life, i wasn't doing much observational drawing anymore, and I fancied getting to grips with a new skill [lino printing is a pretty simple thing to set up, at least to begin with...] so it seemed like a good idea...
Many of the prints in the shop here are the fruits of this project.
(And you can find out more about that project here - www.ayearofbustrips.co.uk )
There'll also be other prints and maybe the odd…
