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

Groundhog Day 2020
It's that time of year again - Groundhog Day! The text on this card is from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, when the Red Queen is telling Alice how things work in Wonderland. In evolutionary biology, the Red Queen Hypothesis refers to the idea that organisms must constantly adapt and change in order to keep up with an ever changing environment. I cut the bottom of the card into a curve so that the card can rock back and forth to kinetically demonstrate that the running groundhog is literally going nowhere.
This is my 6th annual Groundhog Day card. If you'd like to see the previous years' designs, here are the links.
