my first rubber block print!!!
since this blog has 4 followers i don’t think i have an audience to please so i won’t keep things short. my favorite medium is ink. and i have a set of hand-me-down^3 rapidographs which are de facto my preferred tool. but i’ve been told many times that my work (“my work”… lmfao) resembles carvings… i did carving/printing with linoleum once, in high school, and i liked it (but i lost that one). i also did cut paper once in high school. ANYWAY what i’m saying is i always wanted to do it again but never got around to it because it’s mildly expensive and/or not readily accessible. but before i left for school this year my wonderful aunt gave me two rubber blocks and all the materials to carve and print them, and this is my practice block!
i have watercolor paper - the first one was my first run on the front of the paper, the second is on the back which is a bit smoother and nicer for this purpose.
this is basically an impulsive unpremeditated sketch done in the duration of one judee sill album (heart food) but i really like how it turned out and i am excited :-)
