Block Print: Moon Mountain

Creative PursuitsAriel ColemanComment

I've been watching Jfellows block print for weeks, via Instagram, and it finally got to me last night. I walked to the art store, bought some black speed ball ink, a lino block, and got to work. This doodle is the one I carved on my pumpkin a week or so ago. I spent a good 15 minutes deciding whether the sky should be black or white, and I'm really glad I decided on  black, I like the way the moon 'glows'. 

The coolest part about block printing, is how all the prints turn out a little bit different, they are each unique in their own way. I'll definitely be doing more block printing in the future.
