Ancient history

In 1999/2000 I was doing some sort of art/traditional craft study at a school in Norway. My enthusiasm for the teachers was varying, and my diligence in studying was questionable. Nonetheless, there are items from that period which I still have and which are worth showing. Regrettably (yes, I really think so now) I gave away too much.

This is my first and only attempt at carving an image and printing from the block. The Norns.
Printing was tested at a short stint as an exchange student to Ă…land.

After I found it a few weeks back I have been considering buying equipment and doing more printing; it is certainly one of the things I have shown more aptitude for, and it is something which can be practiced in a two room city flat (unlike wood carving or metal moulding).

Today I finally got around to framing it. Luckily the thin paper has not been ruined in the passing years and moves.

Thanks to VK for buying me a frame (and, unlike me yesterday, not breaking the glass on the way home)!
Thanks Bro! Drop by soon again!
