Cutting is more fun than printing.
No setup involved. You grab a block and knife and go.
Printing takes more time.
You need brayers, barens or spoons, plates for ink, ink, palette knives, paper towels, thinner, and maybe a printing press. Your bare feet work really well too.
Then the paper has to be prepared. Get it damp. Helps the image transfer better.
Making art and commissions are two totally different things, too. Most of you probably know that.
Commissions are work.
Making art is fun. It’s breathing. It’s freedom. It’s escaping the confines or grind of daily life. It’s doing what you want in your medium.
I haven’t made any art this summer. Only pens.
