The Lino and Woodcut Prints of Jeffrey Knopf
Here are all my blocks before printing.

And finally here are the shepherds.

I am so happy with his print, it is a totally personal piece of work, I also have ideas of cutting a bigger version of this.

Saved from the draw of obscurity
So this block was saved and I am glad I finished cutting it. There a are a few minor problems but over all I am very happy with it.

This was not an easy print to do but we finally got there with it, there is still lots of scope with this one and I might do cut another version of it.

It is great to see all these blocks finished and all the prints.

Another block printed

At last a day of printing
Seven blocks and nearly a hundred prints, here is the start of today’s madness.
Big thanks go to my man Olly Flude ( seriousbison.tumblr.com) for printing my blocks due to my recovering back, also thank you to all at Hotbed press for making me welcome.

Oh and there is more not content with finishing the other block I decided to knock this test piece together, it needs a bit of tweeking but I will do this in Manchester.

With this I am trying to simplify my visual vocabulary aiming for the less is more attitude.

Out of the chaos comes the finished block, this was done with on Sunday but due to my daughter smashing my Ipad screen I have not been able to upload it until now.
I decided to go a bit more free form with the sky on this one so am looking forward to printing it next week in England. I also think I will be revisiting this image and making it bigger as well as revisiting some of the more abstract areas of the picture.

The Manchester printing session could be a mammoth one as I have now got seven blocks to print so watch this space.
