Switching over to Tumblr click here to go now

Ok for the few of you that ever hit this blog. You may or may not know that I did complete all 52 woodcuts for the year!!! in fact I was done in November. I've been giving it a lot of thought and I guess I'm gonna switch on over to Tumblr, as I move forward to next years project. the 366 project. I'll be doing one 15" by 20" woodcut a day for the whole year. plus it's a leap year so I get to do 366 woodcuts next year!!! like this year ,I'll be updating on facebook, twitter and my website, but I think Tumblr is better for my purposes than this blog, I guess I can always switch back if I change my mind anyway right..... ok see ya at Tumblr or facebook
thanks Sean video

Week 34 Woodcut 39

Week 33 Woodcut 38


This one was on time but I'm posting it late here. anyway I liked it allright ....

This one was a real dud. but thats why I make one a week, so my life can go on even when I make a cruddy woodcut , there is always hope that next weeks' woodcut will be better...

Week 30 Woodcut 35 Speed Kills


I can't believe I'm 35 woodcuts into this project, that's pretty good for just under 7 months. I really can't wait to start the new year and get crackin on my one woodcut a day project. those prints wont be quite as big, they'll probably be 15 by 20 or something like that , but one everyday is gonna be insane I can't wait! In the meantime , this one is nothing special but at least it is done!

Week 14 Woodcut 19 For real


Ok I got back from Chattanooga and did this in one day, this is another one that would really benefit from the multiblock treatment , and maybe in afew days I'll get around to it in the meantime this is done 30" by 20 " like all the rest....

Week 14 Woodcut 19- REJECT


Ok this was supposed to be woodcut 19 , I was trying to hurry to get this done early as I was going to Chattanooga for an Outlaw Printmakers show last weekend, but I kept making bad cuts and couldnt ever salvage the shaky drawing. in the end i decided to print it just to show that I'd been working. the response ended up being favorable enough for it so maybe later I'll go back and work it up into a color woodcut and see if I can save it until then this has been rejected....

Week 13 Woodcut 18


Ok , heres the story on this one, I made this image originally for Yeehaw Industries they ended up using it for a tshirt graphic. they still have the original block, so i thought I'd just pretty much do the same thing over again so I could use the block in my installations. I had tried to develop it into more of a narrative image than the first attempt, I was gonna make it a swamp scene i had a standup bass playing rabbit in there plus the mouse and even had a couple of turtles, but i screwed up some of the imporatnt cuts and ended up just cutting all that junk away... but I do think I'm gonna do a block with just the rabbit now ..... anyway here it is. ( 20" by 30" just like all the rest

Week 13 Woodcut 17


This one has been finished since last sunday I think, I had posted on facebook, it didnt get a lot of comments or likes. Maybe it looks too much like a rebel flag for some people , or maybe it it's just not that good. either way, it's done and I've moved on to the next woodcut anyway again it's 20" by 30"

The First Fifteen...


Heres the graphic i came up commemorating my first fifteen woodcuts for the OWAW project... yes I had more important things to do than waste my time on this but I didnt feel like cutting today....

Week 11 Woodcut 15


Got this one done on Friday. number fifteen! It really is easy doing one a week but i need to do two a week for the rest of the year and even that wont get me to one hundred i need to do 3 for thirteen of those weeks ., I expect to really blast through them this summer when I'm not working but even that is only like 10 weeks so there are gonna be a few more times during the school year that i'm gonna be cutting like mad to get three done in a week. anyway It was hard for me to draw this Tusken Raider and the thing that hangs around his neck looks really odd. what is that supposed to be anyway?

Week 10 woodcut 14


I did this in one day or really half a day after I had it all drawn out. It was nice getting off work today due to bad weather. Birds, what can you say about em that hasn't already been said... like all of the prints in the OWAW project, it measures 30" by 20"

Week 10 Woodcut 13


I know this isnt the coolest print I ever made but I need it for a big banner I'm making to take with me for SGC in St Louis. I used to try to be more experimental with my use of typography in my woodcuts like 15 or 16 years ago maybe. i have gotten kind of monotone with it these days but I really do dig cutting out letters.... later this week, I should have a decent one with a lot of birds in it...

Week ten Woodcut 12


Actually i finished this one last thursday and i did post it to facebook that night but I have been too busy to get it up over here. It's gonna be a rough stretch between now and when i get back from SGC at the end of next week. in the meantime I have another block with mostly text, and one with a bunch of birds I'm doing for this week. plus I hope to do another with alligators and one of a Tusken Raider before i go to St Louis. We'll see....

Week 9 Woodcut Eleven


Ok Theres a few biblical themes I'm gonna tackle over the course of this year. The Last Supper With Hot Dogs was a logical extension of my older prints Renaissance Hot Dogs and the Expulsion... I think I may end up making this a four block/ full color image this week. we'll see

Week 8 Woodcut 10


Celebrate Diversity!
Ok this is the second print for this week, the week ends today for me and I wanted to have 2 others done by today but I guess It'll be ok if they spill over to the next week. Anyway I did this one quick I started cutting last night and finished it up today. like all of them it is 30" by 20"

Week 8 Woodcut 9


Well I'm starting to get a little bit ahead but it's gonna take a lot of work to get from one woodcut a week all the way to 100 for the year. Anyway this one is based on my all time favorite picture of Bukowski and this washed up broad. like all of these woodcuts it's 20" by 30"

Woodcut 8 Week 7


See ! I think I can do it. this is my second woodcut for the week. i have a third one well underway! I'm getting so charged by doing this ! It is getting easier and easier knowing that as soon as I finish one i'm right onto the next one . It's very liberating and takes a lot of the pressure off to make each one a home run!

Woodcut 7 week 7


I have two prints for this week and I'm shooting for a third. I'm this close to committing to 100 blocks for the year. If I can get caught up to 16 prints by the end of February I'm gonna do it!

Week Six woodcut Six


Well I was kind of thinking about making one woodcut each month in full color and I still might start doing that, but so far I'm just having too much fun knocking em out and movin on. This week , again I have already finished my woodcut for next week already, and I'm startin another block tommorrow. Right now I really think 52 blocks wont be a problem. Knowing I'm going to be making another one and another one is really liberating and takes a lot of pressure off.! This one may end up being used for a poster for another print studio I work with but I'm not sure right now....

Week 5 Woodcut 5


I was working on this a week ago and bailed on it in favor of the Alphabet print I made. Well, I finished it up and have actually completed an additional print for the week but I'm not gonna post it quite yet. I'm hoping to figure out a way to use some of the i've made so far for some commercial print and pattern design , but I'm basically just starting out on that adventure.at any rate I don't seem to be having a problem knocking out one a week....

Week 4 Woodcut Four

Heres my print for week four. It's just a simple woodcut alphabet , but it's something that I've wanted to do for some time. The thing that I am most excited about for this year/project is that i'll be making more woodcuts than I normally would and I'll be able to loosen up in tertms of subject matter and just take more chances....

Week Three Woodcut Three


Well I was working on something totally different as late as Tuesday and switched over to this one. i like it better. I actually am planning to make one woodcut a month in color and this will likely end up being the one...

Week TWO Print TWO January 8-15


Like I said, I didnt have the idea for making one print a week until I was well underway on this one and realized I was making one woodcut a week. So again, i am a day or two off schedule but I should get caught up this week, and I can now start posting updates along the way as I conceptualize,draw, and cut each new block!
