Christmas Cards: Stag & Stag


I make my own christmas cards every year. Mostly I just go and see what I find and make something really spontaneously. I think it is a good exercise for coming up with new ideas, and that goes especially for a topic as cliché-ridden as christmas!

These cards were printed using a risograph. I cut the stags out of a piece of black paper folded in half. People asked me, “why are they both male?” (Why not? I wanted them to be symmetrical. 🙂 )

I used paper that I found in our workspace. I made the pattern on the grey paper using potting soil that I scattered onto the riso.

Looking forward to doing more riso printing! Merry Christmas!
