Portland artist Liv Rainey-Smith specializes in the superannuated art of hand-pulled xylographic prints. Her unique woodcut process incorporates a mixture of traditional and modern tools as well as a blend of European and Japanese printmaking technique. Each print is an original impression direct from the hand-carved woodblock (see photos above for a glimpse into the process of creation).

Best stickers ever!! They stick so well to my cargo carrier on my car, and they survive Seattle area rain and wind! Highly recommended for anyone who wants an amazing design and an amazing product.

This is the most perfect bookmark. Love these woodcuts, and I just watched Color out of Space in which I noticed the artist's work on one of the characters' tshirts!!! Where can I get one?! 🖤

This is my second time ordering from this shop and all the stickers are such great quality. My boyfriend absolutely loves them and the shipping time is always quick which is a bonus. I'll totally be ordering again.
