I made this book of giant woodcut prints for my senior thesis in 2011, titled The Forest is Thick & It Reaches The Sky. It spans over 30 feet when unfolded. It’s the story of a bird that leaves home to explore the world only to find itself back at home again, but with a new sense of home under its wing.

In 2019 I bought a Takach Etching Press and we reissued five prints from this book. 


Each print is a 22" x 30" woodcut relief print on Stonehenge Fawn 250gsm paper. Prints are hand signed and numbered in a limited edition of 15.
