Working with illustrator Rob Chapman

Many of you will already be familiar with the work of artist and illustrator Rob Chapman through our Herb Garden and Farmyard greetings card collections.

Rob provides beautiful illustrations to accompany letterpress text on cards, all of which are printed in our studio on one of the vintage presses.

Rob is an illustrator who worked in gouache for many years, specialising in military illustration and educational resources. In recent years, he has turned to printmaking, initially with linocut, before discovering the intricate world of wood engraving.

 

Rob has shown in two Printmakers Council exhibitions in recent times: ‘Pushing Boundaries’ at the Farmleigh Gallery, Dublin before moving onto an Arts Centre in Ireland [citation needed]. Pushing Boundaries was a group exhibition curated by The Printmakers Council.

The second show, ‘Loosely Bound’, has been at the Hampstead Literary and Technical Institute in London before moving to The Printroom in Suffolk.

Rob has also had a piece of work accepted for the Printmakers Council Archive in Scarborough Museum and Art Gallery.

We were very lucky to showcase some of Rob’s work in the Gallery Space at the end of 2016 and we’re very much looking forward to welcoming him back in the future.

The Farmyard and Herb Garden Collections are available  to buy through our etsy shop under Lino & Wood Engravings. As well as being beautiful cards to send to friends and family, they do look great framed and hanging on the wall.

  1. A big thanks to Smallprint for the opportunity to work with them and to show a selection of my wood engravings. It’s a good space for a small show. Any suggestions for further farmyard animals would be welcome (along with me saying ‘What!’).
