Today is derby day in Kentucky and tomorrow the flying pig marathon in Cincinnati, so I’m carving and printing the key block for my Flying Pig print today
Spent the day carving a new woodcut at the log cabin print shop. Its going to be a 2 color/block print. Im 70% finished with the first block. hope to finish it and print next saturday
Im carving a new woodcut today at the log cabin print shop. Ill be here until 5pm.
that’s all i could do today, but check back next week, i hope to finish carving and print the woodcut!
I dont have a plan for a particular print, but the studio is open to the public, you are welcome to stop by and see what i end up making…or come to make something yourself. Ill be here until at least 5pm.
You might remember, when a few months ago, I sketched Washington Hall, along with the row of shops on old US Route 62 in Old Washinton.
I have finally finished carving the 9”x24” panoramic woodcut of the scene. My plan for today is to proof it, and then print an edition on paper.
just printed the rest proof. I am over the moon happy with how it looks!!! maybe a few more bricks around the horse?
carved some more bricks–to bring out the horse… let’s put it through the press and see how it looks!
I’m happy… now time to print on the “good” paper
US Route 62 goes through some beautiful parts of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region. The long views of fences, barns and horses, running in the fields are spectacular.
I wanted to capture that feeling with my latest woodcut.

Here is the final printing of my 16×20 squirrels woodcut. Winter is coming, so they are getting their food storage together.
They are dry, and I’m happy to mail one to you. You can order one (and support my work) using the button below.
Today, I carved my latest woodcut; Squirrels getting ready for winter.
Over the last year, I have been learning to print larger. (one secret is to use bigger knives) I want to make original, hand printed art that can fill a large space (while still being affordable). I’m thinking of younger people, just starting to put a house and art collection together. 16×20″ is a big size for me, but I really love working in this scale. Compared to working in smaller formats, these really make a great presentation
It took the whole day (and cramped hands) to carve the print, so I squeezed the whole process into 30 seconds. My plan is to print it tomorrow at the studio. Keep visiting this website for updates to see progress on this print (and my other projects)!
Update: Here’s a video of the carving/inking/printing of my latest woodcut…i think it came out great!!! One thing I love about big prints is that their presence changes the entire room. This one really cheers the place up. It’ll probably take a week to dry. Once it is, i’ll offer it to you all in the online gallery
If you would like to have one for your art collection, use the button below, and I’ll mail you one!
I liked my christmas card – Bear In The Woods – so much I decided to carve it poster size 16×20″ Here’s a little animation of the carving process. I’ll update when it goes through the press tonight or tomorrow at the latest.
