THE MOON | COLOR WOODCUT PRINT, 2012.
NOTEABLE GEOGRAPHIC FEATURES ON "THE MOON" WOODCUT
DRAWING & CARVING "THE MOON" WOODCUT
"THE MOON" was drawn & carved on a block of 3/4" birch plywood, the size of the block roughly 36" x 32".
We drew the night sky on the same block & then carved that out too.
Before printing, we jigsawed out the moon shape from the starry blue backdrop.
PRINTING "THE MOON" WOODCUT
We made a 2nd block to create silver grey shadows beneath the key. This block printed 1st.
The sky & the moon are inked seperately & realigned before printing with a screwdriver.
Paper is registered and the block is hand-cranked through the press.
