Mini-Relief Prints

I was scheduled to do a workshop with a group of non-printmakers. I made a kit of 6o small 3" X 4" lino blocks (2 per student), inexpensive brayers, non-toxic roll-up ink and several speedball knives for carving. The workshop was rescheduled to be advanced students learning pronto plate lithography instead. So after the workshop was finished I was left with a stack of lino blocks. I left them out on the small sofa table. I started doing one a night. Easy and fun...not too serious but another departure from the "high-control" stone lithography I've been doing. Each print is spontaneous, no expectations.
I've been able to entice passers-by to cut one or two.
