Crisply carved details pair with subtle woodgrain texture from the block in a lovely combination of marks.
An even layer of ink is applied to the fine block carving for each print pulled.
MAKING "THE WOLF" WOODCUT
"THE WOLF" started as a drawing made directly to a block of birch plywood.
The black lines from the drawing remain while the rest of the woodblock is cut in low relief.
Carving "THE WOLF" was methodical work!
Hundreds of intricate curls lend coiled energy to the running leap of "THE WOLF"
"THE WOLF" looks back mid-pounce; a peaceful gaze even with sharp teeth & beaming eyes.
Proudly ornate, deeply animal, and spirited.
"THE WOLF" is a loyal beast, connected to kin, operating on instinct.
