How unusual to stack the skulls like that. They look really neat. And looks like you are very good at carving, and laying down the ink. I like your colors, but purple is my fave, so I look forward to seeing more of these in that color, when you get the chance.  Wink Black head, purple belly, red shoes?

New idea, and forgive me if I am asking a dumb question. The lino we did in Middle School was all done by hand. Not sure what your technique is...but can you ink the lino half and half? Like say, half the head is one color, half another? you could then color block with six colors, instead of three. Just a thought. Your challenge for the day!


Oops...How about tie dye?Huh Put on with a small paintbrush, and swirled?Huh

Thank you!
Yeah you can ink the lino half and half. I just feel like using that many colors will make it too busy. I'm sure other people like it that way, but I like it simpler. XD

Errr, maybe a tie dye effect can be done. But I think it'd be more difficult.

These are amazing!  How long does it take you to carve one skull?

I actually don't remember how long it took me to carve each one. o.o
I assume 1+ hrs, might have been longer, but I lost track of time when I carve. XD
