Linocut Printmaking

I've recently completed a personal project of linocut printing—something I gratefully learned from my studies abroad at the Design School at Leeds University. It's a unique process in which you have to slow carve in relief at a piece of linoleum (rubbery padding), and your image has to be backwards so that it will print right. I also find it to be quite a meditative process to slowly carve away at something, never knowing for sure how the end product will look like after the inking and the printing stages. But that's also sort of the beauty of linocut prints: that every single print you make will be different and unique in its own way. 

So with that, check out my first Linocut print! Not too bad, I hope?!
