lino cuts

Got inspired recently to work on some new lino / block cuts.  I was delivered a fresh sample box of marmoleum at work, so I took some home with me and got really obsessed with carving blocks for three days.  I got sick of having to change blades so may times on the lino, so I switched to a speed block that cuts like buttah!  What an awesome way to spend another arctic winter day inside.  Hopefully the motivation will come soon to make some new linen napkins and a little blanket for our favorite baby and these can actually be put to some good use.  Until then, I’ve just been stamping some napkins from our wedding and old hankies I had hanging around…

first pass at the whale block:

used Dad’s trusty (more like rusty, and dull) old saw to cut a wood block to mount the lino to:
