A byproduct of digital design and fabrication, paired with hand finishing and printing, this woodblock print is a physical manifestation of a digital working process. The image is personal work designed in tandem with a seasonal collection of digital patterns. This print is done in 6 colors, at 7"x5", printed on Japanese masa paper using oil relief inks.

Through conception to execution, the design and final output of the work constantly mediated between the hand and the digital tool. The wood blocks were cut using both a laser engraving machine, along with traditional carving tools. The printing and registration was done entirely by hand.
These prints were largely a byproduct of research into physically expressing digital work, as well as a "proof of concept" that required multiple iterations.
