New woodcut print of Dr. Fauci. I hope you all are staying well, listening to the doctor and wearing your mask!
This print is an edition of 20, signed and numbered, and in my shop here. Price is $30 US, 2/3 of which I am donating to 2 healthcare charities that provide medical supplies and care to underserved communities around the world. The charity organizations are Partners in Health, and Project C.U.R.E.
In the past I have made woodcuts by transferring a preliminary drawing to the block and using that as a carving guide. With this portrait and a couple of other recent prints I have tried drawing directly on the block, first in pencil and then permanent ink, and then carving. I like it. The Fauci woodcut was the first I made using a wall mount for carving that was created by my father-in-law. Carving while standing is SO much easier on the back than carving while hunched over a work table. The mount deserves a post of it’s own.
