Odysseus Woodcut

Published by at 9:19 pm under odyssey,sketchbook

Did I mention I’m in a little printmaking class at CCAE? It’s all water-based, which appeals to me since I’d like to be able to do some stuff at home and in their open studio, and I don’t like working with solvents and such. Anyway, I missed a bunch of classes in a row (doh!), but here’s what I was fooling around with tonight. It’s on a tiny little block, about 2×4″, so I was having a little trouble keeping control of the cuts, but it came out better than most of the other ghastly things I’ve made in the class.

    Are you planning on doing a graphic novel interpretation of The Odyssey? I am a high school English teacher and would love to incorporate that into my curriculum.

    Yes, indeed I am! However, I’m just getting started, so it’s probably 2+ years from seeing print (1 year to do it and 1 year turnaround at the publisher).

    You really have a knack for conjuring Old, Ripped Guy. Nice work.

    So glad you’re working on the Odyssey; I am a sucker for any story that combines travel, adventure, and personal growth in the same swoosh.
