Cats on the brain. Here are a few new block prints. Some of these I did in early spring and the astronomy one I finished this week. I waited to put them up here and on Etsy until I found a post office I didn’t mind going to!
So basically I am a printmaker. At least that was how I was known where I lived for many years. Of course I did other work, but for some reason, even before I started only working in printing, I was referred to as a printmaker.
I have not pulled a print for almost 2 years. When I moved, I sold my beloved printing press and all of my show inventory has since been liquidated. So when I was asked by a local organization if I would donate something I had a challenge as I had nothing to give. The challenge was to print by hand, something I have not done in many many years and did not even have the right equipment for. Yes, there is always the old back of a large spoon, but to get a really clean print, you need something a bit more high end.
