(ABOVE) The glowing, golden "MOTH", printed on strong and slightly translucent Okawara. A gradiant of tones on the key block gives an other-worldly radiance to this intricately carved image.
DRAWING & CARVING THE "MOTH" WOODCUT
(ABOVE) After our key drawing was complete on the block, we began the process of carving all of the intricate linework for the "MOTH" print in low relief. Using a selection of hand-held carving tools, the block is slowly made ready for printing.
PRINTING THE "MOTH" WOODCUT
(ABOVE) An additional woodblock was drawn & carved to add more color behind the "MOTH" key block's linework. The two blocks are printed together to make the finished "MOTH" woodcut print.
