Print day at the log cabin print shop 13 july 2019

Its saturday, which means, its print day at the log cabin print shop. The studio will be open to the public, with free tours and studio use from noon-5pm

linocut of pigs carved and ready to print
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!

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
