Happy Burns Night Linocut


Happy Burns Night! Hope you're having fun reciting the 'Tam O'Shanter' & piping in the Haggis! To celebrate I created a linocut print in honour of Robert Burns detailing some of his famous works. I love my little tartan book of his poems & songs which is just right to dip into when I want to conjure the wild, free Highlands of Scotland & a Scottish accent! The A4 print is available to buy in my shop.

The print details aspects of his well known works including; roses for 'My Love is like a Red Red Rose', A haggis, mouse & a louse for his Addresses' to each of them, the Scottish Highlands for his 'My Heart's in the Highland's' & 'Wild Mountainside' also put in the NYE classic 'Auld Lang Syne' & the beautiful 'Ae Fond Kiss'.

Here's the linocut block, I can now write in joined up writing backwards! 

It's also available on Redbubble on T-shirts, cards, homewares etc, I love the tote bag!

Also why not have a look at my Burns Night Illustrations from 2016, 20152014!
