Happy Hanukkah to all and may the season of light lift your spirits!   I made this eraser carving this morning just after my morning coffee. I love eraser carving because it's a shorthand way of making a woodblock print. Cheap materials, simple technique. I love to buy my art supplies locally from the smart and sweet staff at Muse Art+Design in SE Portland. When carving, it's a bit difficult to hold the hand steady after a cup of coffee but with eraser carving, the mistakes become part of the charm of the image. Unfortunately I had already sent out my holiday cards but there's nothing more fun than carving into a gushy eraser so I decided to go for it. I'll be teaching an Eraser Carving class on Saturday, January 28 from 10-2. It's crazy fun and anyone can do it. Even with the coffee shakes!
