I never left the house this day; it was the first day of cutting into the linoleum in my new creative project, Linocut Relief Printing. Never leaving the house limits photographic opportunities. But this was my focus for the day...
(The linoleum block is turned over hiding my detailing. I will not reveal my work until it is finished. I am awaiting a shipment of nice paper to print onto.)

This is really cool, John! Is it your innovation? I am so eager to see the results when you are ready to share them.

@cejaanderson Oh no, no innovation on my part; the title refers to the company that makes the "kit" for beginners. It came with a linoleum block, the tools, various inks, a brayer (ink roller) & bench hook plate for holding the block in place.
I first did this in high school art class about 30 years ago & remembered liking it. I recently bought another artist's work on eBay & it gave me the nudge into doing it myself.
Once I complete a final print I will display the block & the print. Gotta get paper, first.

Looking forward to the finished piece.

Looks like an interesting project. Also much more time consuming than I normally have the patience for.. Anxious to see the finished project.

@deu49097 @aglennc I look forward to the final piece, too. Actually, I look forward to the final of the 2nd & 3rd block prints- this one is really just a primer.
Not as time consuming as you might think. At least the block carving-part. I completed the carving of the block in one evening. How long will be the printing process? Dunno yet.
