You may know my guest today if you've ever encountered the Speedball Printmaking Posse, a print loving tour of artists that spread the gospel of printmaking while doing demos, handing out posters and samples of relief inks. He's even got his own namesake Super Graphic Black ink with Speedball. His name is Lino Bill Fick. His work is a bit rockabilly, can be viewed as deranged, and it captures the essence of his signature style of drawing which can be brushy, inky, and always graphic with intense black lines. Learn about his unusual beginnings abroad as the son of an oil company worker, how the Outlaw Printmakers started up, and hear about the book that he and Beth Grabowski published called "Printmaking: A complete guide to materials and process".
Today on Let's Get Technical, Lino Bill walks us through some of his best tips for linocut printmaking.
