PRINTS

Monotype

This assignment was made by drawing a design in printing ink on a cardboard surface, then covering the piece with a sheet of paper and passing it through a press. The result was the exact reverse of the original drawing.

Linocut

The piece on the right was printed from a linoleum block (first). It was handled in exactly the same way as a wood block, but since it does not have a wood grain, the surface of the resulting print has less texture.

Woodcut

The print (second) was achieved by rolling ink over the wood design (first). The woodcut design was done with a drill that has a very fine point. The lighter areas remained untouched and the darker areas were transferred unto a piece of paper.

Etching

The tiger image (first) was drawn with an x-acto knife on glass, ink was poured into the open areas and transferred unto paper (second) on press.
