If you haven't checked out the Snake Post Office Zine that @Quixote171 put together with contributions from across the fediverse, what are you even doing with your life? Here's my contribution, a woodcut of the titular post office in Milton, NC, which is indefinitely closed due to an alleged snake infestation. #snakepostoffice

Inktober Day 7, "Enchanted." (mildly gruesome but not gory)
#inktober day 7, "Enchanted."
From Wikipedia: "A Hand of Glory is the dried and pickled hand of a male person who has been hanged, often specified as being the left (Latin: sinister) hand, or, if the man was hanged for murder, the hand that 'did the deed.' "
#inktober day 5 "Build."
Only one day behind now 🙄 Need to work on inking technique, although I think there's only so much that can be done with water-based ink (and I'm not going to roll out oil when I'm only printing a few of these at a time)
Going to attempt #inktober as a series of 3"x4" linocuts; The only chance I have of seeing this through is if I keep it quick-and-dirty; sketch directly on the block, a single pass carving, straight to print. Fighting the inclination to go back and do touch ups is going to be the hardest part for me.
I've been wanting to try #letterboxing for years, but never got around to making a stamp. Finally did that today.
Letterboxing is like geocaching, but instead of coordinates you follow treasure-map style clues to find a box hidden somewhere, typically some sort of public land. You bring along a pocket notebook and your stamp.
When you find the box, there's a book and a stamp in it. You stamp the book in the box with your stamp, and you stamp your own book with the stamp from the box.
Printmaking, et cetera.
