It took me a while to sort out and finish cutting ,but here it is. There are bits I like and bits I'm not happy with, but I'm never totally satisfied with any of my work. I've learned a considerable amount from creating this block, both in cutting and printing. In that, it's been a very positive experience.
Now I've taken the decision to use part of my working week to apply myself to my wood engraving I hope I make faster progress and return the element of creativeness to my working week. My recent educational illustration jobs have been something of a treadmill in their repetitiveness and inflexibility (the sheer amount of it, too has been draining) and I'm feeling stuck in a rut.
So...off to my sketchbook to plan my next block. I still have a maple piece and lots of ideas. Watch this space!
