Yes, I did print last night

45 more happy little linocut prints drying on the rack. Snail, blanketflower, boreal toad. I still have some little blocks prepped, so there will be more. This makes... hm.... 8, I think. :-) There was another in the original batch, but I didn't like it so well, so it's relegated to the "stuff to tear up and use in other ways" pile.

Snail with its block. Everything is printed on a little 6"x6" piece of Hosho paper. (Brief description of Japanese printmaking papers here.)


  1. I just wanted to say that you are totally brilliant. LOVE the snail! Keep on going- what a great sequence you have in progress! I'll look forward to seeing more.

  2. just stumbled upon this unique inventive idea Sherry in a Pinterest post from Printmaking. thanks for sharing.BTW your prints are fantastic. cheers from a fellow printmaker

  3. Hi Trekker!

    Funny, I could have sworn we'd been in contact before now! I'm a periodic lurker on your own blog. Glad this was useful for you. I've modified my drying rack again, since I can't attach anything to the ceiling where I am now... it's on a portable garment rack!


Linocut in Progress: The Third Act

Time to wrap up this linocut ! And we are wrapping at warp speed (see what I did there?)... because there are deadlines. Exhibition deadline...
