This poster speaks for itself.

This project started after a conversation with my friend about vague sports advice. I wanted to do a fun and simple lino print on dark paper. Being broke, the only butcher-like paper I had were my grocery bags. This was the first poster I ever printed by hand. I sliced my finger open in the first five minutes of carving the block. But, in the end I learned a lot about registration and the art of carving a linoleum block.
