I mentioned a bit back that the thing I was in to for the moment was stamp carving. It has been great fun getting back to carving again. Printmaking is very close to being my most favorite of all art making. It is only second due to my complete and utter love of figure drawing. I have been playing around with some stamp designs. I will start teaching art lessons again soon and want some stamps to use for brochures and things. The process is easy and fun. All you need is a few tools and you can create fun unique stamps. I found a great tutorial on stamp carving here. There is also a link that has a great idea for using a pencil as a carving tool for kids. You can find that here.

It's so much fun carving stamps that I want to share it with you guys. Leave a post here and I'll hold a drawing November 24th. The two names I draw will receive a custom stamp personalized for them carved by me. Have a great Thanksgiving!
