Woodblock in progress

Strange BedFellows
about 7" wide by 8" tall.

I firmly believe one arts ones world.

This is not one of the set of 12 I've begun,
but is of that world and time,
sort of off to the side,
 in darker areas where one doesn't venture willingly.
Edges got cleared today.
The block itself, before printing is always so beautiful
that I've decided to photograph them.
Once printed, they will never look like this again.
 Printing is next.

Early Man

Early Man
This 18.5 x 14.25" print
 is printed by hand onto 20.5" x 17" Kitakata paper. 
It's a tight fit onto the paper, but it does fit well. 
Not a fan of matting, because it many times reminds me of too tight underwear, 
I would float this. 
It is the first of 12 that I've got lined up to keep me out of trouble.
