Drawn, Sanded and Printed

My hands are so screwed right now, I keep getting a cramp in my forearm, but 150 hours of carving later here's the print. I am quite pleased with it, I feel like it really captures a sense of wonder, grace and in the birds's struggle a sense of impending doom. This will most likely be one of the last woodcuts I ever do, as I just don't find the process worth the payoff. I would rather pay to get a large silkscreen made than the amount of hours doing what is essentially a mechanical task.
