The creative output on display here is pretty amazing. These images absolutely deserve to be documented in a publication of some sort.

I've slowly moved away from etching and more towards copper engraving this year thanks to a string of breakthroughs in how I work. So I thought I may as well push forward to see where it takes me. #printing press #etchingpress #printstudio #printmaker #printmaking #copperengraving

phlegm_art wrote:So this is how I work on copper engravings. Here I'm using a fine burin to cross hatch some dark areas. The line depth is controlled by the angle you hold the tool. Here my cuts need to stop at an abrupt line which means the copper curls up. The second tool I use is a scraper to cut the curls of metal. #phlegm #phlegmart #copperengraving #printmaking #intaglio #miniprint #burin

100% this. It's impossible to not appreciate the dedication, love, and respect he has for his craft.
