I decided to submit a better photo of the lino cut that i did!! as i dont think that the other one does it justice!!
i got into the INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF TYPOGRAPHIC DESIGNERS with this piece!!!!!

i did this using lino cutting - took me maybee 65 hours to compleatly make!!! and then you ink the lino up and print it!!!!!

i am currently selling on ebay at the moment!! and have linked to it on my main page!!
if you do want to buy it then you can just e-mail me and make an offer!!!
