Updated woodcut prints

I have deepened my wood cuts and focused on improving my inking and printing process, I feel there is still a lot of room for improvement but definitely happier with these, more consistent across the print and less messy, but I would like to be able to get the black solid, as these areas have been cut to be that way, if anyone has experience of woodcut I’d appreciate some tips!

   

       

Notre Damn Cathedral, District 1, Saigon

I often feel put off photographing tourist spots, just because of the volume of photos taken already and it  just feels like a bit of a waste of time, trying to make something original and different, but then many people looking at my blog will never have seen this cathedral before anyway, so I decided to share these, my aim with these shots was to try and create something that has some texture and are just small glimpses of this building, with a bit more mystery, rather than the typical postcard full cathedral images people often take.

Monkey Island, Cần Giờ, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

We took a few buses and a bike taxi to Monkey Island, last weekend, a very beautiful area, with lots of swamp, trees and monkeys, it is always fascinating to see their expressions and lots of cheekyness as expected, one nicked my hat, which I thought a fair trade for letting me take a shot, what a great experience to hang out with our cousins for a bit!
