About Lawrence Finn - HipCat Printery

Hi, I am HipCat,

I've been a practicing artist printer since I was 16. Back in the day I did artwork for the Dead Kennedys art director John Yates. I did work for Memoria Pulp in Germany and got my work into the National Gallery of Australia before I turned 21. I've been at this for a while as I've just turned 48.

I print on some lovely old presses, I set type, I cut lino, I engrave wood. I'm producing artistsbooks & prints; editioning for artists and teaching people how to create and print by hand. I love teaching the myriad of techniques and disciplines within printmaking.I am fortunate that I am able to teach people, techniques which allow them to create the works that they have dreamed about and facilitate their saying the things which they need to say.

Thank you so much for coming with me on this journey, reading this far I hope you will consider becoming my patron, and supporting the arts (through me and through this project)...

$84.65 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 per month, I'll cry with joy then send supporters a wood engraved broadsheet based on the on the "desiderata"...

A sacred printed text that was at one point in time found on the toilet walls of most every house in New Zealand.
