Pork Press' Profile

About

I first picked up carving tools in the mid-1980s, and shortly after was introduced to the work of Jose Guadalupe Posada. I took me many years and more than a few journeys to return to song of printmaking. Since then, I have been printing for ten years and woodcuts the last six years. I love making a woodcut, and prefer wood over any other material. Each piece of wood is unique, which makes each block a new experience. I use many found items aka "out of the dumpster", including wood to carve, paper to print on, and cardboard to make masks.
I moved to Tucson, AZ twenty+ years ago, where live in an oasis in the middle of town, with Josephine, my wife, and my children, Michelangelo, and Reyna. My family is by far the most important part of my life and is the engine that drives it.
