Wood block printing

Ok, these are my first two attempts at block carving and printing, I used acrylic paint watered down rather than printing ink, am still looking for some, not so easy to find these things in Saigon.

This is the first block print I carved, I just had an idea in my mind and carved it out.

The second one was from a sketch I did of a guy, when I was having coffee one day.

I have another project in mind, currently researching, this will be a series of prints, on a theme, maybe 4 or 5, I think this is the ideal medium for this subject matter, because it is something that gives me a warm happy feeling inside, when I see it everyday, it is random and always changing. Looking forward to showing you soon.
