"this is just to say" is a shop featuring hand-carved rubber stamps designed and made by me - that's Tian, a graphic artist living in Stockholm, Sweden.
Hej! My name is Tian and I work primarily with relief printing. Simply put, after I make an initial pencil sketch, I carve the design into the block, ink it with a roller, then print it onto the paper. All my illustrations are carved and printed by hand in my studio on Lidingö.
I am inspired by interesting people and their stories, paradoxes and things that seem just a little out of place. Making illustrations is my way of exploring the city where I now live.
