Just found out that Etsy featured myself and my Little Buffalo Press on their "Hand-Made" blog today. Stop by and check it out!
Here is a sampling of their interview here-
The name Little Buffalo Press came from my fascination with Native American culture and how the buffalo was central to their way of life. They used every part of the buffalo and nothing went to waste. I strive to utilize all of the paper I work with in my letterpress, as well as the ink, in other creative ways so that nothing is left to waste. I am working on plans for paper making, and I plan on using the scrap paper I leave behind from each job to create new paper.
I primarily use linoleum, as well as combining analogue with digital mediums by making photo polymer plates from my digital illustrations. I started using linoleum because I find the carving process therapeutic, as well as less expensive than going through the process of having a printing plate made. I enjoy how limiting linoleum is, and that if you make a mistake you have to really think creatively to work yourself out of a corner. I was finding myself trying to replicate the effect of a hand inked linoleum block when I worked on the computer, and I have found that I enjoy taking the time and having the patience to get these interesting textures and colors by hand-pulling these prints on my hundred-year-old presses.
