Various Lino-print Examples

I have been creating linoleum block illustrations for a long time now. It started in Junior High, when I, like so many others, learned the skills of carving and printing. I have been carving and printing ever since, mostly for myself (holiday cards), but lately I have been commissioned to create quite a few lino-cuts as both fine art pieces and illustrations.

Some of my current and all-time favorite block prints are shown here.
