December 5th, 2005 :: "Ouch"

As you may know from yesterday's post, I have been printing my New Year's cards. It's a four-color linocut and I did an initial print run of 36 to make a final edition of 25-30 prints. For those of you math-challenged folks out there, that's 144 times that I rolled ink onto a linoleum block, plopped down a piece of paper, and rubbed the back with a wooden spoon to transfer the ink. 144 times over two days. Tomorrow I get to go through, pick out the good ones and then go through them all again for signing and numbering. Today's robot is a quick self-portrait of how my spooning arm feels right now. Anyone want to give me a massage?
