Steamrollers, Blocks and Chili

12 May

It’s my last day in Boise, Idaho and I spent the morning with Amy Nack, the Wingtip Press Director, at a steamroller printing session at a local school then the afternoon back at the studio to knock out a final couple of block prints. The first is a composite of a number of petroglyphs that I drew during my visit to Snake River.

When we were out on our road trip, I sat in the mountains and cut a small block. It’s the first time I’ve done any block cutting al fresco and it was fun. I used a soft, easy-cut block, the sort they use in schools. I haven’t used it before. Here are the results.

And here are some photos of the steamroller printing this morning. It was well over 90F and I had some fresh fruit salad Mexican style – mango, melon and pineapple sprinkled with salt and chili. Delicious.
