This is a printmaking plate I made with a piece of illustration board and white glue. The figure was drawn on the board, carved out with a craft knife and then sealed with glue. To create the swirly background bits, I twirled the tip of the glue bottle in the wet medium and let it dry overnight, before inking and printing.
The resulting print was created on etching paper with a sepia ink.

I love how the soft paper molds into the crevices of the plate, allowing the ink to fill in the shadows.
