Blackboard Script

Olivia J. Kiers. “Blackboard Script.” Linocut. 2016.

A mere 2 x 3″. I’ve been wanting to print something fun and pointless for a while, but my sense of purpose got in the way. Yesterday night after work, I finally sat down and scribbled, carved, inked and printed for about 3 hours from start to finish, just enjoying it. A, G, N and X were chosen because those are the most entertaining letters for me to draw, and which I could also easily manage carving in reverse. Anyway, the point of the pointless print is for it to look like real handwriting practice on an old blackboard. Use your imagination to supply schoolchildren from past eras.
