Image: A larger version of this ended up as a huge woodcut called "Baila, Baila" available in my store. These smaller images are my way of sketching which I consider an exercise for bigger and better woodcuts. I can't seem to sketch on a notebook, the task seems like a waste of time. I draw on a solid cherry block, from models or model books, and cut the block while day dreaming my next big piece.
Process: Woodcuts and wood engravings are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.
All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil.
