Friend of Dorothy Linocut Print

A handmade, original, open edition linocut print entitled, "Friend of Dorothy." This simple bold print features a banner with the text "FRIEND OF DOROTHY" backgrounded by a limp wrist. Historically, the phrase "Friend of Dorothy" was used as a covert way to identify another member of the LGBTQ+ community. Though the origins of the term are debated, many people believe it has to do with gay icon Judy Garland's role as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, or else due to the myriad queer themes found in L. Frank Baum novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. 

The linocut is hand printed using Speedball Professional Block Printing Ink (Black) on beautiful Strathmore 150gsm printmaking paper.

Each print is signed and dated in pencil by Eric Van Giessen. This is an open edition print and as such does not include edition numeration.

Every step in the process of making the linocut, from designing and drawing, to carving and printing, is done entirely by hand by me. This means that every print in the edition is absolutely unique and may vary ever so slightly from the illustration. These differences and imperfections are not flaws, but rather an inevitable outcome of the handmade process.

All prints are dispatched within 3 business days in a board-backed (acid-free), protective cellophane sleeve, ready to frame or give as a gift. They are then carefully packed in a rigid mailer and dispatched via Sendle Tracked Shipping (♻️ 100% Carbon Neutral).
