A blog about printmaking, children's illustration, and books.

I've been working on this poem Home for quite a while. It was originally written to be part of my artist book about Earth. But I decided the poem didn't really fit with the art I'd already made for that book. Then I thought if I expanded it maybe I could make it into a children's book. But that didn't seem quite right either. So I've decided to do the poem as a large linocut. I think I'm going to do multiple blocks for different colors instead of painting it with watercolor. I will paint this sketch with watercolor though to help me think about the colors. I'll post that colored sketch soon!
