3. Sutton Hoo copper butterfly linocut illustration
Updated: Jan 17, 2020
The landscape of Sutton Hoo is a valuable home to local wildlife and nature. I created a linocut illustration of a small copper butterfly resting on a wildflower which was used for the inside of the leaflet. These are commonly spotted at Sutton Hoo.
The linocut illustration has been used inside the May to August 2019 ‘What’s on at Sutton Hoo’ leaflet.

There are five more linocut illustrations which include King Raedwald, wild flower meadows, geophysics, grazing sheep and Basil Brown. These will be used later in the year for further Sutton Hoo marketing materials. I’ll share these as soon as I can.
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading this as much as I loved creating the linocuts.
