I remember doing lino cutting in my grade 9 art class. The carving tool slipped at one point and dug a huge chunk out of the meat of my left thumb. I quietly wandered over to the sink, rinsed it out, wrapped it in paper towel, and kept my thumb tucked in my fist the rest of class.

The chunk was still attached at one end and had decent blood supply, so it eventually reattached and filled back in. I have mixed feelings about lino cutting. . .

Oh yeah, cutting the absolute shit out of your hands doing this in highschool was just part of the fun.

I have almost exactly the same story, except it took a chunk off the side of my pinky, including part of the nail. Had to hide it from my art teacher, haha.

If you make copies as you progress in the artwork you can ultimately end up with “different” pieces to sell

That's pretty slick. I kinda want to try myself. What type of material are you cutting into?

Is there a name for that kind of art style? Not the lino cutting, but the design of the Flowers.

I’m actually not sure but I think it’s most similar to Japanese or traditional tattoo styles

Ukiyo-e. It's a traditional Japanese woodblock cutting and artstyle

How long did it take to cut the lino?

Interestingly this was the exact type of art I was working on when I was watching the planes hit on 9/11 in my first week of HS back in 2001.

This is beautiful and I would buy one or 5 as bookmarks. Craft arts are so rare these days.
