Image: This one is for kids of all ages. From a series of child acrobats or Saltimbanquis as we call them in Spain. I went to a circus and there were seemingly 20 children acrobats of all ages jumping and dancing and doing flips and cartwheels in colorful costumes. It was energetic, sweet and mesmerizing.
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. Signed Numbered Woodcut Limited edtion Children Surrealism 6 to 12 in
