18"x22" relief print with komatex(plastic board)

I used a flower language of peony whcih is "nobleness" to create this image.

Excellent print, the details are perfectly clear! I think that maybe you should expose more of the building instead of the patterns. The print is reminiscent of Japanese wood block prints, good job!

I was wondering what is the pin method you mentioned as I have problems with registration of the relief myself.

the pin method is you need a set of pins, and you have to punch holes on the paper to set it on those pins.
here are some images I just found from google, mine isn't this fancy though [link]

and thanks for the feedback!

I have trouble with registration of the relief myself. May I know what is the pin method mentioned to help with registration?

thank you! komatex is harder than lino, but once you get used to it it's not too hard to carve :)

Ah, knew there had to be a bigger version of this somewhere. : D I really like it. There's a lot of detail in it. I really like how it all flows together. It looks great. The peony is a flower I knew was pretty symbolic and important, as far as it's actual meaning went though I didn't really know lol...

I especially like the moon in this. : O It's awesome. It seamlessly blends into the picture. I like it. :D
