Blockprint

The blockprint style is based on the look of intaglio prints, such as linoleum cut. Some I carve and print by hand, and others I create digitally, using scanned hand-made textures.

Some of the the logos and labels created in this style have been featured in the design annual Graphis, and this is my favored style for illustration assignments.
