Woodblock print set that tell story
A TRUE STORY! My dog Booger went missing for 40 days and 40 nights. These prints are all true, supposed events, worries and happenings, except those that are very real, that I was consumed with while he was gone...and were so vivid in my head after he returned that I had to cut them into woodblocks.
(Also, I couldn't pass up the religious ticklings of the 40 days and 40 nights....really, it was 40 days and 40 nights.)
I'm very proud of these.
These are easily frameable fine art prints, which are as interesting to grown-ups as they are to kids.
They have been purchased by schools, libraries, pediatricians, home schoolers...for framing and to be laminated so kids can color them in and tell their own stories.
I believe picture books should be just that, with minimal words. My minimal words are include here as guidance.
Each print is packed with story telling material....
as I tend to entertain myself with visuals while I cut the wood...so there is way more than is really necessary in each print.
These prints are smaller than the originals, and are perfectly sized to pop into frames. I do have the original full sized prints...which I'll get posted once I fine time to photograph them.
These are the remaining sets....which I sell through my Etsy shop, or in person should I run into you.
