reprinting Uganda woodcuts
On the way back home from Norfolk picking up a woodblock that I’d left in King’s Cliffe that I needed to reprint. Strange to work with something from another time. It was a very deep block (not the one on the print bed), nearly an inch, so it needed tracks of the same depth for the roller to run on… should have taken the photo when those were in place.
Seemed like taking a print from some kind of fossil of a creative burst gone by. Because they are single block prints it allows me to really focus on the quality of the printing… too heavy and it fills in the woodgrain marks… too light and it hasn’t got that certainty of the bold shapes that seems important.
All this an aside to the resumption of illustration and over mulling over of studio imagery from the Norfolk experience.
