Christmas Card 2018 – carving

you might remember last years Christmas card. it was of barnyard animals sitting under a bright, new star. see it here.

today I started my 2018 Christmas card. I wanted to stay with the new star theme… but with woodland animals!


The design is drawn on the woodblock and ready to carve


First, I carved the stars and doves


More carving to make the stars twinkle, and to bring out the shape of the tree


The bear has a face now!


The carving is done. Check back tomorrow evening. I’m going to print it tomorrow afternoon, and will share print pictures of the final woodcut.
