6 Sides 2 Every Story

Last year I participated in a collaborative block print project. The starting printer chose the subject from a news article, carved their image on one side of the 2″ x 2″ x 2″ cube and sent it on to the next person. The next participant read the news articles and created their own image from the story, carved and sent it on. The block size was difficult but some people were able to create refined images (must be due to very sharp tools!)  The final printed image uses all 6 sides to represent the story. Over 60 blocks were completed. I felt honored to be part of Chi Meredith’s group which also included Carol Chapel, Debby Sundbaum-Sommers, Danuta Muszynska and Angelita Surmon. Our cube was #66. Subject was Australia’s decision to start killing Kangaroos again.


The image was hand colored after the printing.

The image on the blog site is “Au Natural”.
