    I thought I'd share a recent woodcut print I did titled "Rise." Woodcut is where you carve away an image out of a block of wood, ink it up, and run it through a hand crank printing press. Kinda like making a crazy detailed rubber stamp.

    This took about 30 hours of carving and about a case of cold pale ale!

    Here's some other stuff. Hand colored the rainbow; printed the school on some old 1950's era wallpaper, and did the Canada Goose the on the same and floated it in the frame.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I do it as a hobby, but it's still awesome to hear some good comments!
