I finished Happy Crabby!
I printed a total of 11 that look like this.
Quite a challenge lining up the plate for 3 separate colors!
This is the linoleum block that I carved down to the black line visible here.
Always loved those eyes!
In this reduction print process, there can be so much block cut away
that when inking, it will get onto other parts of the plate.
This is vindictive of linoleum printing.
I wasn't so sure about the excess ink at first
and cut a little more block away.
But after a couple runs, I liked it!
Here's some different prints and practice prints with other colors-
2 color reduction print - Magenta Pink and Black
Another 2 color reduction print - Teal and Black
So glad I went with pink instead of this color for the final prints!
Thanks to Johnston Community College!
Striving more for direction and less for perfection on this artist holiday,
