These are some new prints I’ve been making that might be part of a book called “Journal of Malcontent”
The idea is to cast a spell through the act of print-making itself. Each print is an incantation, initiated through the process of laying out the words, carving the rubber block, stamping the paper, and pressing (smashing) the block down into the paper as hard as possible. It’s an activity meant to exorcise frustration, relieve tension, and to re-balance the psyche. It’s a satisfying form of self-therapy and nice to look at when they’re finished.
