The first printing session was an utter failure.
I spent the next day re-carving and stayed home instead of going to the printshop. There, I hand pressed the image by using the back of a wooden spoon. Eventually, a fairly good print emerged from the pressure!
As you can see, I do a lot of my work on the floor. I even sit on the rug when I watch tv! My Boyfriend, who is also an artist, took this strange photo of me while I was working.
