New to Department Store is multi-disciplinary designer Bernard Lodge. His work features a chaotic world of creatures of all sizes, topsy tervy landscapes and playful characters that you would perhaps find in a children's book. After working in advertising for 5 years, Lodge gave up his work and returned to his love of linocut, purchasing a huge Alexandra Victorian Press that he now activity uses to create this work.
His creative process begins by designing his work on a Mac computer, which is then transferred onto lino cut when he chips away until he is happy with the result. The design is then painted up with his chosen colour and printed using his press. Check out his fabulous collection of items HERE.
