Jesse Lino Prints

I would like to say that these lovely ladies are my work but I would be lying. Inspired by vintage sewing patterns, they are the creations of talented South African Jesse Breytenbach whose blog I have been following for a while now. Jesse is an accomplished illustrator and print maker who uses the block printing method for her fabrics.

I am very impressed by the even spacing achieved here.

Yep! All lino blocks are hand-carved.

Jesse's Chocolates print on cotton. Ironically, Jesse has authored a graphic novel named I Don't Like Chocolate available in her etsy store here.

Is there no end to this lady's talent?

Jesse has started another blog called Print Specs that reveals what materials printmakers from around the world use. If you visit, you will see a picture of me having a bad hair day, which is typical of most days really.

OMG, the spacing is perfect, she is incredible!! It's not eve like they are all the same model, the rows & spacing would be impossible to measure or judge with wet ink, she's amazing!! Unless she has dots or some kind of magic marking device, but still . . . she is robot. Love Posie

Thanks for such a lovely post! I'm going to put up some details on how I line my blocks up on my blog soon - it's really simple once you've done it a few times.
