The Wood Engravers’ Network is such an active group! Right now, there are at least three different exchange projects going on: Seize the Carp collaboration, Exquisite Corpse book project from the 2016 Annual Summer gathering in Texas, and the annual 2017 WEN calendar. And this doesn’t even include the bi-annual print exchange!
In this post we’re featuring WEN member, Block & Burin Editor and WEN’s Tumbler blogger, Tony Drehfal‘s end-grain maple block, and the printed carp image. Tony organized this long-term collaboration with Hamilton Wood Type Museum in the spirit of carpe diem – seize the day – for wood engravers. The carpe diem phrase does get a bit overused, and we figure WEN members would rather seize a carp anyway.
Periodically, we’ll check in on our carp engravers to see what they’ve caught 😉
