I have discovered the joys of printmaking! Hurrah I guess for the Peck School of the Arts forcing me to take classes outside my major.

Our first project was making a woodblock print. Using the first letter of our first or last name we came up with an adjective and made a design. There aren't many "j" adjectives so I went for "jolly". I did a little research (read: Wikipedia) on the Jolly Roger and came up with some interesting stuff. I didn't really know what I was doing when I was carving so the design is a bit simple, but I like it overall. Given another chance I'd a) change up the line thickness and b) buy not crappy tools.

Still, all-in-all very fun. Looking forward to our next project.
