Block printing ink on white Bristol vellum surface paper. 9in x 12in.
The Excavations series uses a scan of the source text Excavations at Carnac by James Miln available at archive.org.
I selected pages from Excavations at Carnac, and printed those on 8.5×11 paper on a Brother b&w laser printer. I then took an X-acto knife, and other tools, and marked/cut elements of the source page. I taped the marked page to a sheet of Bristol paper and then rolled block ink over the marked page creating ink transfers to the Bristol paper.
Some of the prints contain other colors of block ink, which were applied afterward freehand with brushes, and the back of sandpaper for an electric sander cut into various shapes.
If you’re interested in purchasing any of the prints, reach out and let me know.
Several of the prints from Excavations appeared in Bones Journal.
