I attended a lino class at Kala Art Institute this past weekend with master blaster carver Artemio Rodriguez (a Mexican boy with blue eyes?) and carved all the live long day. I learned to hold the tools like a pencil, how to sharpen those mothers to a hee-haw razor point, and all about inking by hand. Thanks, Buddyray, for the super birthday gift of learning.
Oni are, of course, Japanese demons. This particular specimen is of the dead samurai cat nazi variety.
