Name: Lester Doré
Location: Madison Wisconsin
Print Title: Sailing to Sturgeon BayComments: The image combines two wonderful things I did this summer: spending 9 days in Door County and going on my first sailing out in hosho on an inkjet printer and glued it face down to block. After that, a great many things went wrong, necessitating sanding away most of the image. I then redrew the image on the blackened block with white gouache, cut it with western style knives and gouges, and printed it with a cheap baren and an old-style wooden screwdriver handle. I learned a lot!
