Woodcuts & Linocuts
This is my new artistic passion. I just love the sharp contrast between black and white. Return to this page often because I have been quite prolific in carving these images. A “woodcut” is an image which I carve into the surface of a piece of wood. I roll ink onto the carved surface, then press and burnish the image onto paper or fabric with a wooden spoon.
The areas which are carved away will not touch the ink, while the areas not carved become the black design on the white surface. A “linocut” is the very same thing except the image is carved into a piece of linoleum.
A woodcut may show wood grain texture while a linocut won’t. The following images are available in various formats:
- Limited Editions (numbered and signed) printed on heavy printing paper with a nice border suitable for framing
- Same as above, but with the addition of watercolor highlighting. (some designs—not all)
- Hand-printed onto high quality cotton T-shirts, tank tops, and long-sleeve T-shirts, all hand-signed by me
Checkout this professionally produced video showing how I create a woodcut print from sketching out the design idea to printing from the carved block. It’s about 5 minutes long, and will make the process very clear for you.
