As enjoyable as silkscreen and other printmaking methods can be, linocut is so intuitive - you’re just drawing with carve marks instead of ink marks. After making a quick practice panel, I got to work on this piece.
Every year in my church, we have a weekend where high school members visit the college groups. Typically during this time each of the small groups make t-shirts, but I had the idea of making vests with matching patches for our group (named Kodiak).
I think I need a break from the manic pace of school, work, putting together the CCAD Comics Anthology, etc. Carving can be tedious, but it’s actually really relaxing and offers a nice break from the insanity of the rest of my work right now. I’m excited to show you guys the final when it’s done!
