Careful carving of careless scribbles

Another 4”x6” linocut I printed today.
Illustrating continued efforts at cutting my blocks so as to imitate loosely drawn lines while still maintaining their distinctly carved quality. Currently the plan is to print a second edition of this image with an additional color block background. For now, though, I’m rather satisfied with how it came out.
The second image is the original ballpoint scrawl from maybe a year ago that led to the print above it. Over all it’s a ghastly scribble but I really liked a few of the searching lines in it and decided to roughly translate them into a block print.
