One of the things I enjoy most in the world is printmaking. It's an opportunity to meld my artistic aspirations, crafting and design. Woodcut is a particularly wonderful medium which I learned to do at the elbow of Martin Mazorra at Parsons. I'm really never happier than when I'm carving blocks.
I just finished a particularly technically challenging project, Ampersand 1. I won't go into detail about why this project was so tough. Suffice it to say that the right ink, the right paper, the right tools really help make a project go better in the end. Once I had those things set up properly, the final printing process went incredibly smoothly, even the registration (how the layers line up) was easy in the end.
The final prints of this run are now up on my site for sale at $45 each including shipping within the US. I hope you'll take a look and consider supporting my art. Thanks!
