This is my first woodcut from my intro to printmaking class with Dan Miller who is an amazing print maker. His woodcuts are just fantastic, sometimes these large, amazing 2-3 color editions of swirling lines, sometimes he lets the grain of the board act as part of the art itself.
This woodcut, my first is based on a picture of this old begger lady I saw on my trip to China last summer. I have another woodcut planned this time and have amuch better idea of the fidelity I can attain with the tools. This is a snap of one of my frist test prints, I did a final edition of four prints that are hanging to dry now.
