I have always loved the unique line quality of woodcuts and linocuts (short for linoleum cuts).
It comes from cutting away what you don't want instead of drawing on what you do want.
After teaching myself to do cut linocut prints, I found I enjoyed doing them on the computer more, erasing away what I didn't want instead of cutting it away.
It still takes many days, a minimum of a full week of work to get my first print.
I print these with inks that are rated fade resistant under glass for up to 105 years. They come both framed and matted.
