My Secret Weapon


How do I get fine detail in linocuts? With this little chisel I inherited from my dad. (And I also just like cutting out really complicated stuff.)

handed down tools are the best! What a cool dad. The chisel is my pal too.

Ah-ha! So now I know - I don't think they make them like that anymore, more's the pity.

Hi Jesse,
It was so great to stumble on your site when researching block printing for fabric. I'm working on a line of designs right now that could be used in a variety of ways, but I want to start with putting the design on t-shirts, greeting cards, and a larger prints to hang for wall art. Before I get to carving, could you tell me what you think is the best material to use...lino blocks vs some of the other techniques you've been discovering lately? I noticed your blog entry about foam and perspex. I have never heard of that before. Maybe I could email you a picture of one of my designs to get your input? I'd be so grateful if you could save me the trial and error and point me in the right direction.
Thanks,
Loz
