World Migratory Bird Day: The film!

Well... not film, really. And I guarantee it's not Oscar-winning material. But I put together a little 4-minute video about my linocut process for the World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) poster. Basically I propped up my phone, shot some footage, and taught myself how to use iMovie. (Thank goodness for YouTube tutorials!) Considering I put it all together in less than a day, I think it turned out okay!

Actually... working on it seemed to awaken some latent film-making-wannabe gene... but who has time to start a whole new career right now? I'll leave it to the experts, but I hope you enjoy this just the same.

  1. Well done! Interesting to see you use a self healing cutting board as a timpan. Lot learning how other artists print.

    1. Yes! I've always had aspirations to get one of those rubber mats, but the cutting board works fine. Just enough give, but not so much as a blanket.

    1. Thanks, Robbie! They were fun to do... it's nice to take a break from the complexity of reduction prints once in a while.
