Some more research here on artists/illustrators using Lino cut. My tutor Ian told me of an ex-student of Stockport college called Ben Jones, who uses the technique.
I think his work is fantastic, I have included some images here, great use of black and white and limited colour, and great use of the technique as well! Here the analogue and printed aesthetic of the work really shines and I think these images are fantastic.
The way Ben represents the elements of the illustration are mint, his wolf and snake are really, really nice, I have more than a spot of jealousy for this work! Also the content of them (Norse mythology) really appeals to me.
