I love woodcuts and I make woodcuts. On this blog I write about woodcuts I love and woodcuts I make.

"Small Horned Owl on Maple Branch under Full Moon" by Utagawa Hiroshige
The moon swells, taut, like a great balloon lighting up the blue-streaked sky. It's shape echoed by the spots encircling the sleeping bird's eyes and the form of his curled body. I hear marbles crack and roll across the wood floor. Your grip must be tight, little owl, or else you'd roll right away into the lower branches embrace.
