Image: Many of these swirl woodcuts are inspired by the wood grain. I pick up a block of wood and I can almost place the figure to match the wood grain.
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.
