Folk art style linocut of a family of pigs in the mud
My goal is to print this linocut today: a family of pigs in mud. Because when im in the printshop, im as happy as a pig in mud (also about as messy too!) This print is bigger: 8×10″ .

I have 2 new linocuts to print, and 2 groups of artists are scheduled to print, so there will be lots of activity today!

4 1/2 x 6″ (notecard size) linocut of one of my favorite themes: sharing is caring.

12:10 Dustin Cecil just got back from a week long printmaking workshop at the John C. Campbell folk school.

This *should* keep us from denting our paper when hanging
