Ink Designer's Gocco Magic

Love the whimsical work of Wing-Ip Ngan of Ink Designer. He uses gocco to create some wonderful prints that you can buy here. He's also one of the biggest contributors to the Gocco Flickr Group, check out his Flickr set.

I love my gocco, you can do some amazing stuff with it! Save Gocco is a site dedicated bring the gocco back. Check it out!

A little bit about the gocco:
Print Gocco is a Japanese color screenprinting system developed in 1977 by Noboru Hayama. Resembling a toy, the compact and self-contained printer is clean, quick and easy to use. At one time, nearly 1/3 of all Japanese households owned a Gocco. In the ‘90’s, Print Gocco slowly started to develop a following in the indie-craft movement, gaining notoriety as a cost-effective and efficient method of printing multiples.  In 2005 Riso (the parent company of Print Gocco) pulled the plug on Gocco, claiming a sharp decrease in sales was to blame
