The Scribe. This colour woodcut image was a commission for a medieval role-playing game book. Along with 7 other commissioned pieces, this one stands out from the rest and has seen a lot of comments from other publishers over the years. Contrary to what most people assume, my colour woodcut pieces are not coloured pieces. The colour is applied by hand first and then the black ink is hand-printed over the top of the colour. It is a technique I developed over the years after going to art school and specializing in printmaking. My main purpose of creating these pieces was to create what appears to be authentic medieval prints, and to that purpose, the final art is hand printed. The original art now hangs framed in my studio.
