Lino Block Printing

I remember doing lino block printing in high school and thought it was pretty neat back then, but forgot about it. Recently I discovered it again and bought a starter kit to see if it was something that I wanted to pursue more. If you are unfamiliar with lino block printing please click here for more info. That will do a better job of explaining it. Ok so for a few days I thought really hard of what my first design would be. I almost lost sleep over it. Well the first two ideas were a no go so then I said the hay with it and started drawing lines on the lino block and ended up with just a simple design. Nothing fancy here, but I like it and now yes I'm hooked.



It wasn't until I did the first printing that it reminded me of zebra stripes. I will be experimenting with this same design with other colors, different papers and also coming up with other designs. Fancier ones.
