Oregon Ink Spot Exchange Print

I've decided to participate again in the Oregon Ink Spot Print Exchange. This year's theme is "Reflections of your current studio practice". My practice involves cutting a lot of linoleum, so my print consists of a close up study of three linoleum cutting tools. I have been playing around with repeating images and I liked turning this study into a print that looks almost abstract because of the use of that repetition. I used Arches Rives BFK gray paper and oil-based black ink and drop printed on my proof press, inking by hand instead of using the rollers because the edition was small.
