Lots of Little Digs
This is a block for the next print in the Attitudes series. I never tried this particular way of carving before, just making a bunch of marks with my smallest gouge. I plan to print this block over another one, hopefully to get some interesting color overlaps with the little cutouts.
Actually, looking at the block now in this scan, I think I want to go back in and chop it up some more. As you can imagine, it's quite a satisfying feeling to make all these little digs.
