For 2017 I have decided to pursue a yearlong project to keep me creatively focused. I want to get back to a more "hands-on" process (vs the computer) and block printing affords that opportunity. I really enjoyed the class I completed this past October/November and realized I missed block printing. My project, #52weeksofprint, will include the creation of 52 separate and unique designs which I will print over the course of the year. At the beginning of every month I will select a prompt (or theme) which will serve as inspiration for that particular month. I will sketch each design, transfer to the block, carve and print each design either on paper or fabric. The image above is the final result of Week 1 - printed on cotton fabric with water based screen printing ink.
For January the prompt is "Seed Pods" Below are some images from Week 1.
