Below: Hand-carved linoleum block for hand-printing. Carving date: April 2013. Tool: Speedball linoleum carving tool (with interchangeable carving blades of various sizes). This was one of the first lino carvings I made, and the result was quite different than the original in terms of the detail work due to errors and corrections in the carving process (of course I would pick a design heavy on the hardest element to carve well, circular designs and details). The design itself was adapted to fit and fill the size of the block itself.
