First Lino cut

Woah, long time no post. The lack of a printing press in my life is pretty depressing. But here's a lino block I carved tonight! My first one ever! A few years ago my mom took a relief printmaking class, and it just so happened that she had a few pieces of linoleum hidden away in the basement along with the cutting tools. The linoleum seemed a bit...hard...and some of the tools a bit dull, but all things considered I don't think it came out too bad.

The dark stuff on it is just some chalk pastel that I rubbed over the surface to see what it looked like. Unfortunately I don't have any inks so I can't print it tonight. That's another adventure for another day.
