Linocuts and You

24 Feb

Hey you guys,

I’ve been sick for the past week and have shirked all responsibility in lieu of laying in bed with a bottle of Nyquil. Not good for productivity, I can now say. Anyways, here is something that is inspiring and for those of you that also happen to be bedridden, its also quite entertaining.

This video shows Bill Fick creating a linocut. For those not familiar, a linocut is “a design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed.”

Enjoy!
