Lino cuts and printmaking

Over the last few years I've been playing with Linoleum block printing. The process is really cool because the end result is very bold and graphic. Shape and line become very expressive and dynamic. This image is called the "bowl of hope". We all need to eat out of it probably everyday. The print is a 2 color on a banana paper. I've been studing Gustave Baumann who was an amazing woodblock printer form 1881-1971. His prints look like impressionist paintings. 
Eventually I hope to do fish prints this way.
