This is 4 hours of carving. 4 hours after which your harnds are cramped and your fingers achy. I can't imagine doing wood cuts, which go even slower and are more persnickety. But in the end, you wind up with a print block that you can use until it falls apart.
Here's a sketchbook page with the finished print, finished block and a print from another block I did.
And now that I've finished these blocks, I have to dig through my sketchbook and figure out why it was I felt the need to do them in the first place.
My brain has been scattered of late--thank heaven for post-its!
And now? Lunch!
