wood is good

In my work, printmaking on April 1, 2009 at 5:37 pm

i am pretty much head over heels kick my in the crotch in love with wood engraving! holy moly toledo its amazing. its type high as well as being beautiful so you can set it in type- which means i could print my own little kids book! how amazing would that be! cd_project-0341

the lilac triangle was over printed from just an inked up piece of cardboard! i am pretty happy with it.cd_project-041

the bird print was my first attempt at woodengraving. o the best thing about it is you dont have to use a press, youu can do it by hand with this lovely old fashioned looking thing which i shall photograph at a later date.
