This set of 6 felt tip drawings by Michael Smither have been relief printed by John Brebner using negative transparencies and creating a relief solarplate. The oil based 'green' ink has been rolled onto the plate then the images printed by hand onto Incisioni paper using the Hunters (circa 1905). I visited Michael in his studio with the images and he signed and numbered them for me. All 6 prints are available individually from the Homeprint Gallery for $160 each unframed.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
