Random ponderings: about wood engraving, drawing and anything else that comes to mind. From a little studio in Red Deer, Alberta Canada.

WASTE NOT, WANT NOT
Another old saying ("waste not, want not") comes to mind. Trashing the Star-Nosed Mole block, that was ruined during engraving, didn't make sense. End grain blocks are too costly to throw away, so, with a little manipulating a new image was laid out on the untouched area of the block and it is now in the process of joining the other Aliens of Planet Earth series as Giant Isopod. Check the website to see the finished Star-Nosed Moleprint.
Here are a couple of views of the progress of Giant Isopod so far:
The first is the drawing on the freshly sanded and stained block and the second view is the shortened block after a few days of engraving.
