The sixth in an ongoing series of wood cuts.
PROCESS
   These works are first designed on paper, some on graph paper, some with pencil and compass. I then take a 4'x8'x1" (122x244x2.5cm) sheet of high-grade plywood, cut it in half and map out the design on it. I drill holes in the negative areas to create a pilot for the jigsaw to fit through and cut the shape out. Once the shape is cut, I then go around all the edges with a router to round over the corners. Then I sand everything smooth and apply an acrylic top-coat.
   That may be oversimplifying things a bit, but all the important steps are noted. If you have any questions about tools or process, feel free to ask, I would love to help.

It's very Escheresque

Indeed. Escher has informed my work to the core.

I like how the grey relates to the black in the same fashion the grey relates to the white. If you made a negative of this, it'd be the same design.
