Rethinking Image

Rethinking the image.

Carve face out with dark lines and shading lines.  Carve the rest of the block as white on black.

Carve this.  Like a monoprint.

Bad Hair Day

May carve it like this, I don't know.

More white lines and shading in that case.

What the block would print as:

Needs more white in it in that case.  Carve thicker lines.  Always carve too lightly.  This will encourage me to carve deeper.

Puzzle Block ~ Fantasy Garden

So I've already settled on a dandelion theme.  But I'd forgotten the fantasy element, so now I'm thinking of a cartoonish face having a "bad hair day."

I have a cartoon I've planned to use for a tapestry, but with a little tweaking, the image (or one like it) would serve for my dandelion head.

Only with whispy dandelion fluff hair blowing in the breeze.  8-]
