A Brief Introduction to Relief Printmaking with Thomas Shahan
This is a very nice introduction into the process of relief printmaking. Shahan explores a brief history, referencing Holbeing and Dure, followed by several modern and contemporary printmakers. He then demonstrates the process via his own work with MDF (medium density fiberboard) using what appears to be lino cuttools.
His work is clearly inspired by the classics artists like Bosch. His line work is intricate. Then a quick explanation of inking and then to the press. He opulls a few prints and then shows more of his own work. And finishes with some lino cut images. Very informative introductory video.
