A go at printmaking!

So in general, I've always been jealous of printmakers. Whereas I may take 20 hours to complete a one-of-a-kind painting and can't afford to make any quality prints of it, these clever craftspeople spend a couple hours on a plate/woodcut/lino block, et voila! Potentially hundreds of prints, priced to sell and not a bad profit margin at that. I eventually realized that I, too, could learn some printmaking. So I picked up some easy-cut linoleum and made my very first print. Watch out world! ;) I'm also going to be highlighting some of my favorite printed goods via Etsy today to celebrate. Stay tuned!
