About the ​​Classic ​Car ​Illustrations

Lino cut Illustrations

The images Steve produces are based on lino cut illustrations. They are first, hand drawn in pencil before being transferred on to linoleum. ​This is done buy burnishing on the back of the drawing​, transferring the pencil marks on to the lino.  ​Using gauges the image is then hand carved, in reverse, and hand printed​. 

​Each colour, that makes up the final image, is printed in black. Each of the black prints is then scanned at a very high resolution. ​The scanned images are then brought into Indesign, ​graphic design layout software, where they are coloured and composed​.

Printing the ​Illustrations

​The final image can then be output in many different formats. ​They can be ​produced as super​ high resolution Giclée* fine art prints or as greetings cards, postcards etc. although there is no limit to how the images can reproduced or used.

The ​fine art ​Giclée prints are produced ​on a lightly textured, heavy weight paper. Giclée fine art prints represent the ​highest in quality and excellence. ​​The prints are produced on super high quality papers from ​fine art experts Hahnemühle. The prints are signed by Steve Goodwin.
