John P Center
14 x 10 in, Corian relief engraving, oil-based relief ink on Strathmore drawing paper #400 series acid free, Edition 12, yochananengraver instagram.
Mom and Babe
11 x 8.5 in, Shina ply, AKUA on Masa Dosa, edition 30, This woodcut uses both the European Black Line as well as the white line approach for the color. I enjoy doing my color woodcuts this way because it gives more of a pantry image. Each print is a little different.
25.4 x 38 cm, Matsumura shina veneer plywood, nk: pigment in rice paste,, Golden Open carbon black on 30+ year-old washi (Kozu+manila hemp), Edition 22
10 x 15 in, Linocut and woodcut, Gamblin ink on white Stonehenge paper, Edition 20, My Uncle Dale passed away this July, and this is a commemorative print for not only this exchange, but for all his closest family members. In his final years he volunteered at National Parks and took many beautiful photographs of the landscapes, plants, and animals he saw, and this print is based on photos he took.
15 x 10 in, Linocut, Archival Black water-based ink on Rice Paper, I tried to convey a complex black and white image of a view through two sets of windows that were textured and dirty. It was kind of a challenge to myself to turn the image into almost an abstract pattern.
Fall, God’s Palette
10 x 15 in, Linoleum block, Akua Intaglio ink on Arnhem 1618 and Canson 140 lb watercolor paper, Edition 12, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
10 x 15 in, Three blocks, Birch plywood, Ocaldo Printmaking Water Colours (made in England) on Rives Light White (115gms). Edition 12, Fuji Revisited’ is a new look at an image that I worked on many years back. Unlike most images of Japan’s Mt. Fuji that show the majestic mountain in the distant background this print is a right-up front kind of hit-you-in-the face closeup. I used a kento for block registration and a baren to make the impressions following traditional Japanese moku-hanga techniques. Hope you enjoy this print.
15 x 10 in, Birch ply, Blick black and speedball phthalo on Canson, Edition 13, Still figuring out registration and water-based inks
The Pond’s Edge
