block prints

This assignment was to create our own block print. First we had to find a photograph and put it into the posterize setting on art studio. Then, we printed out the photo, traced the image onto our linoleum square, and then carved out the white areas. Once we we finished with the block we then had to make our four prints which were the following: black and white, hand colored, alternate background, and our choice. I really like how all my prints turned out and I think I was very successful in getting the end result to look how I wanted. One thing that I struggled with was carving out the block deep enough that the final image would come out clean without any of the block showing in the wrong places. If I was going to start over I would change anything because I really like how it turned out and I wanted to do something special for my exchange student and I think I accomplished that very well.
