I've always been amazed by woodcuts and have wondered how they'd been done. I assume the process is similar?
The process is for linocut is exactly the same as woodcut. The only difference is that it uses blocks made from a special printer's linoleum instead of wood. I actually prefer using wood blocks, but the linoleum is easier to cut down to smaller sizes since you only need a razor knife instead of a table saw.

Sorry about the awful framing, my terrible phone photography, but this is my latest.
At XMas my son asked for a picture, and then dropped the hammer on me...I want a cowboy in a gunfight with a Unicorn...so here we are.
It was the year of fire… the year of destruction… the year we took back what was ours. It was the year of rebirth… the year of great sadness… the year of pain… and the year of joy. It was a new age. It was the end of history. It was the year everything changed.
I hate inking my strips. Of all the stages it is the one that brings most disappointment. I like writing them, and the pencilling is just the best bit - but inking to me is often a joyless chore. I've had a 7 panel page of spacebabe wrestling tentacles sat on my drawing board for a week waiting for me to have the courage to ruin my pencils.
Today I had an inspiration.
I inked the girl's tits.
Then I had to do the rest of that panel so it didn't look like I was even more of a perv than my wife thinks I am already.
