Self-Portrait #7

This is a print I did a while back using corrugated cardboard. If you peel away the top layer of cardboard, you expose ridges which when inked give you kind of a medium tone. And then if you cut those away you’re left with negative space. So, this is just a simple self-portrait using cardboard and then inked up and pressed onto paper like a block print. I used two colors of ink and printed it twice to get the effect.
