I've been experimenting with block printing this fall by taking some open studio workshops at Valley Print Studio. So far, I have found that I'm loving block printing quite a bit, which is not surprising considering it's both graphic design AND illustration. The best thing it has been teaching me is how to work with errors and "imperfections", because there is no CTRL-Z when you are carving. I've done 4 block prints so far, but I only have taken 2 of them further and started playing with digitally coloring the prints. I've posted them to a new gallery on my portfolio page, since I definitely want to do more prints. And I also plan on exploring ways to incorporate printmaking into a mixed media illustration process to create more complex pieces in the future.
