Gigantic Woodcut (In Progress: Part II)

Gigantic Woodcut (In Progress: Part II)

In this phase, I am proofing the block. I changed some of the portions on each proof. Not a whole lot, but some. I discovered after the first proof that some of the carved areas were too deep for the barrel/roller to pick up the background, so I went back by hand and printed that by hand. I plan to have an edition of 5, with a few on BFK and some on rice paper.
The next stage is to print the block for real, and then do the monotype stage(s) to make these bad boys some kick ass monoprints!
