linocut
Printed with a rolling pin! Because my press apparently hates blocks that are thick.

clever. Surprisingly clear/clean for a rolling pin.

Lovely, and I too enjoy the play on words.  Quite a nice print for a rolling pin!  So are we talking old-school hard as leather lino here?

To answer questions:
The block is 12x6 inches. I hadn't planned on doing reduction. But its a possibility...
Also, this is not "hard as leather" as you say, linoleum. Its like one of those thick E-Z cut blocks. Now that I think of it, this is the first linocut that I've ever printed. Although that isn't a big feat because I've done a lot of woodcuts, and those are slightly more challenging...
