The departure

a woodcut inspired by my crossing the river in old-town Dubai.

This July, I attended a super fun and intense 10-day woodcut bootcamp, hosted by the wonderful woodcut master Tom Huck in his Evil Prints Studio in St.Louis, MO. We each assigned a piece of wood that's 24 by 32 inches. The image I drew was inspired by the little boat ride my parents and I took in old-town Dubai. Here's the final result :)
