2012 Dragon WoodBlock Print

Happy New Year!!!
It is the year of the Dragon.
I'm a little late but here is the postcard I send out to friends and family. I thought it would be good for my first post of 2012.

Making Of New Years Print

(Page 1)
Start with a Drawing
scan it and in Photoshop adjust the size to fit a postcard

(Page 2)
Print the postcard size three times
Plan out the colors using the three prints
In WoodBlock Printing each block is a separate color
1 Blue Block, 1 Red, and 1 Yellow
The thought is making special color like orange green and a violet
To make Green is an overlap print of blue and yellow
Orange is an overlap print of red and yellow
Violet is Blue and red

Translate the colors to the blocks
