A light at the end of the tunnel!

We have all been busy little beavers here at Octopus Studio Press this past year - Besides the never-ending renovations to the historic Tyrone School House, I have acquired a new letterpress: the coveted Vandercook SP-15! I have also been very busy with my exhibition schedule, showing at Bohemia in Barrie, and Telephone Booth Gallery in Toronto, both in Ontario, Canada.

The photos here are part of an exciting project I was part of - I worked with students from area high schools where each student developed a 12 by 12" woodblocks. At the "Splash" water-festival the students were to bring all their carved blocks to be assembled like a patchwork quilt. One day at the studio, a few fellow artists and myself each carved a block and used my "Lawn Roller Press" to make banner prints as a test run.......
