What are Wood Transfers?
Instead of creating digital prints of my illustrations, I prefer to make Wood Transfers instead. Everything is illustrated by hand or digitally, printed out at high quality on a standard printer, and then transferred onto the wood by hand. Each transfer comes out a little different depending on the wood grain, giving every print a different "wear -and-tear" vintage quality. I choose to do this with my work because the printmaker in me feels that digital printing lacks the artist's touch. Also, each wood transfer is ready-to-hang so there's no need for framing!
