Handsome Boy!

My first woodcut since high school; just a little two-block summer experiment in birch plywood, hand-pulled on Hosho. I don’t think I’ll use the birch again; too splintery and pretty assertive grain for carving. I have five small blocks of Japanese shina plywood to try next, and my tools are newly sharpened.  I’m developing a new boat design for it; we’ll see how it goes.
