So after weeks of carving. Here some photos of the progress and the finished second 3 x 3ft linocut of the summer.
I did as much carving on the balcony as I could and as the weather would permit.
This tiny stuff took almost as long as the whole rest of the block.
Mixing inks in the NSCAD printshop.
I like storing my inks in little acetate pouches sealed with tape. They tend to last much much longer this way.
After the first proof.
First Proof detail.

This is the press I am printing on right now. NSCAD's print department had it custom built by Heritage Machining Services in Kentville, NS. Works like a charm. It has a very large press bed. 8ft x 46in I believe.
