Here are two blocks I made in order to print “vintage-style” shirts for the horror website, VileReviews.com. Early tests have gone well. One more block to complete for the back of the shirts and I’ll be off and running. #linocut #printmaking #blockprinting #linoleumblock #textileprinting #tshirts #vilereviews #horrorsite #logo #clothes #DIYtshirts

Took a 005 micron to a dry zombie print today… Added a mid-tone and some left eye detail. The final step is just a touch of red in each if the eyes, then they’ll be ready to list for sale. #art #zombie #horrorart #blockprinting #printmaking #linocut #penandink #monsters #scary #grin #studiosfineart #originalart #drawing #illustration #etsy

Here’s the printed result of the zombie linoleum cut. Not bad, and it’s VERY conducive to some hand-coloring and some additional fine line work. Should be a lot of fun. #art #linocut #printmaking #blockprinting #zombie #horrorart #grin #scary #penandink #studiosfineart #monsters

Finished zombie linocut. Hopefully this will yield a halfway-decent print. We’ll see. #art #zombie #printmaking #linocut #grin #scary #gothic #horrorart #undead #studiosfineart #blockprinting #monsters

So, this turned into a shit storm. It’s getting done, but not in a smooth, ‘seething-frustration-free’ sort of way. The linoleum did not take the transfer, which was just a delightful surprise, so I had to adhere the drawing itself to the block and just cut through it. I regret my decision to not only start small, but also highly detailed. #art #linocut #printmaking #zombie #penandink #horrorart #gory #grin #painintheass #studiosfineart

Finished drawing for zombie linocut. It took a bit of self control to stop myself from going crazy with a 005 Micron to add all sorts of texture. But, as it stands now, this little thing is going to be impossible to cut. I’m nothing if not an expert at making things more difficult for myself. #art #linocut #zombies #horrorart #illustration #penandink #grin #gory #monsters

Inking what will eventually become a transferable image for my first crack at a linoleum block print. This image, like the block itself, is only 3.5” x 5”, so we’re keeping it small at first. It’s a zombie. Ray told me I should do something with zombies… You know, because everyone is a sucker for zombies. #art #linocut #zombies #illustration #horrorart #studiosfineart #penandink #monsters #scary #gory #grin
