Being at boarding school friendship is the most important thing to keep you sane. I thoroughly enjoyed putting together this artwork as it was very fulfilling seeing the final product of a lino block print. The print, especially the 'hug' shows a sense of depending on each other. The way I have set up the work symbolises how our friendship is growing and moulding us together.
