Inspired by the children's novel "School of Good and Evil" by Soman Chainani.
My fascination of Japan's Edo period and it's "Ukiyoe" (wood block prints) had me developed a hobby craft of carving lino blocks for prints. First hand illustrated then impressed onto the linoleum block and prepared for carving. The Black Swan is carved on a 4"x6" block and used water based block printing ink.
Precision and attention to detail is key to carving. There is no undo key or super glue to fix a mistake once carved.
