You can stand under my...

I'm working on my final project for woodblock class right now, a five block, five color print and I've been doing some sketches in sharpies to help visually separate which colors will go on which block. I decided on the umbrella girl because I'm dying to try out some techniques for the rain and use bokashi, or gradation, and get to play with the fun Marimekko-like print... not to mention the weather we've been having. Check out these great umbrella themed woodblock prints too!
