Lake Tahoe Block Print and T-Shirt

Made some of these Lake Tahoe linocut prints today...good to be back at the press after too long.

Feels good to be back printing. I'll have some of these #Tahoe #linocut prints in my shop in February. #laketahoe #California #travel #printmaking #art #print #artist #outdoors #nature #hiking #camping

Last month, I took the same block and printed a long-sleeve t-shirt for myself.

For something different, I've been experimenting with block printing on fabric this year - trying all sorts of ink, fabric and heat setting methods. I did a ridiculous number of printing tests so I'm tempted to accumulate my findings into a blog post. In the meantime, here are two kids cotton T-shirts I printed using linocut blocks and Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink on my etching press.
