Man-Child hand-lifted linocut

Man-Child hand-lifted linocut, originally uploaded by pejnolan.

It is such a thrill to cut the linework for a linocut, but never actually seeing what the result will be. That is until I ink it for the first time and it comes to life. It is working like crazy, hoping and imagining, wanting and praying, investing a bit of yourself; then seeing it in the real world for the first time - THAT is an awesome, albeight fleeting, moment. After that initial high, I get to make prints. Each one has unique characteristics. Pulling the paper off each time gives another momentary rush of excitement.
