I love it. What is it?
This is very simple. Don't panic.
The goal of this project is to make a collection of beautiful block prints (linoleum and wood blocks), each one of them a hand-carved and hand-pressed original, printed on a museum quality archival art paper, and based on your favorite catchphrase
, short cool text, or your inspirational words.
Today is the Day!
and you are basically pre-ordering one or more original prints for a deeply marked down price of what it is on my shop, and with the benefit of getting your favorite text done, if you choose so. Or, if you prefer waiting for the full collection, then You’ll have what she’s having.
Dimensions: 21 x 30cm ~ 8.27x11.69 inches.
Don't worry about submitting words right now. There will be a survey sent out if the project is successful so you can get your phrases and other necessary info to me.

This is an Original plywood hand carved by me. Not a print, but the carved Japanese wood block itself covered in ink and then semi washed to a cool patina. The end surface is not a negative, but the positive itself. An art piece ready to frame or just applied directly on your wall. Signed and dated with a dedication on the back made to you. Dimensions: ~ 21 x 30cm ~ 8.27x11.69 inches.
Most of it will be sunk into production costs and after that what’s left will be used to allow me to focus on creating and organising more content. Production costs consists of things like refinements on the digital edition, the linoleum and wood blocks, oil ink, art paper, the Moleskine notebooks, tools, packaging, and good mood. But why is the rum gone?
I already made a good bunch of blocks and will keep working as pledges start coming in. Regular blog posts and updates will keep you in touch with my journey and reveal new artwork. I appreciate you taking the time to consider joining me on this. I'd love your support, and I'll see you at the finish line. May the Force be with You!
