I'm an artist working with moku hanga, traditional Japanese woodblock printing
15 July 2008
Here's the print after an impression I took tonight from the second block. Carving topographical features like this takes forever, but it's these very features that give the map prints their veracity as maps so I can't forgo these details. I love how this layer gives the print so much depth. Next I'll be starting carving on a third block and adding some human characters to the scene.
