“Woodblock workshop”

I’ve turned up for the Monday workshop—as the only person. I came with the intension to copy more alphabets for future use, as I’ve already copied one before in my previous visit (you can read about in this post).

I got some tips and advice from Danny, and after that was left to do my thing. However, after only one alphabet, I was done with copying letters. I’ve been sniffing the white spirit for the whole morning, and all I needed was some fresh air.

The magical drawers.

I didn't get around to doing this one, but it's the next one on my list.

Getting ready—I'm a bit obsessed with brayers.

After the lunch break, I decided to try and experiment with some interesting layouts for my (newly) found studio name—Teal & Dot. I totally took the inspiration from my co-student John Sinha (I can’t find it on his blog through), who has very creatively used woodblock to make an amazing version for his studio name. Unfortunately, mine didn’t come out quite as well, but at least I’ve experimented and saw what doesn’t work.

The end result wasn't that great.

Either way, it was a great day (time flies in this room!).
