It’s been two weeks since I showed you my Big Linocut as I have it drawn on the block, so I thought I would give an update as to its progress so far. I made a couple of stop motion videos of my cutting process. It’s a slow and tedious one – especially in the ferns.
This first video is a little choppy since I only took a picture every 5 or 10 seconds. I think it represents about a half an hour of cutting.
This one is better. I think it is smoother and it has some more fun animation aspects to it. Again, this is probably a half an hour of cutting (not including all the silly animations at the beginning).
So I have probably found five or six hours to carve on this block total. That’s not a lot and as you can see, it’s going to take me a while to get it cut!
