Wood cut

I used some old wood I found in the college's wood workshop before the holidays. Last week I started to carved into it using a flat lino tool after sketching the reverse of my design onto it. The picture of the man comes from a Norman Rockwell painting.
Printed in blue. It's quite patchy and the wood may need sanding down but I think it came out alright with the exception of a few patches.
I like the blue on black! It's clearer and would make a nice cover for a book if I decide to make one. I printed it at home using oil paints. I can print onto paper with this using the pressure of my hands. It might not look as strong as inks, but it depends how much you use and I find it useful because I can still print things at home.
