Umbrella girls

Remember this post? well, I finished the Japanese woodblock class yesterday. Kind of sad, I liked having that on Saturday mornings, it made me feel like I'd already accomplished a lot by 1:00, and i still have sooo much to learn! We put up the final work to discuss and it turned out really amazing, everyone in the class was so talented, and we all produced such different styles and content. The umbrella girl with blue background was my final woodblock print, the grey is one I'm playing with on photoshop. i still want to carve out some raindrops and puddles in the blue, as shown in the grey one, so it's a work in progress.

5 color, 4 blocks

My panda, 2 girls, and final umbrella girl; other students works.

I love this gorgeous cat print!!

These works were by a student, Greg, who i think took to woodblock printing quicker than anyone. His final print was actually (8!!) carved blocks, the surfer on the left. I love the subtle colors of his fish print, too.
