    They’re stunning images, but I’m a printmaker and these don’t look much like woodcuts to me. They seem full of crosshatching, possible but not common (Durer excepted!) in western-tradition woodcuts. Engravings/etchings perhaps? On his site it’s saying ink drawings. Colour me confused… Woodcut has long traditions behind it in east and west, so it’s a shame to see the term used as a catch-all for ‘old-looking illustration’.

    Reminds me of Socar Myles. She’s great.

    These drawings remind me of illustrations in the fairy tales I read as a child.

    You might also like Tia Pulitzers sculptures or Scott Hassells drawings.

    Sadly, it seems I cannot look at ANY repurposed engravings or juxtaposed Victoriana without recognizing characters from Wondermark.

    These are delightful, though.
