Today I sold my Michaelangelo. He was the first in a series of small woodcuts that I made last year. I was experimenting in a small format, woodblock prints the size of playing cards. Michaelangelo led to other subjects from Renaissance sculptures, and then I started looking at paintings. I tried to turn Jan Van Eyck’s Self Portrait with Red Turban into a woodcut too. And others followed. If you are interested, you can see some of them at my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AllynPaperworks. Although I have given a few away to friends, I’ve never actually sent one of my woodcut prints out into the world and now I know — as happy as I am to make the sale, it is a weirdly unsettling thing to do.
