What's a Linocut

Linocut, linoprint, relief print, block print are all terms for basically the same thing - a carved design from a substrate, inked and then printed.

I use linoleum or linoleum-like substrates for my work and, mostly, Japanese carving tools to create my designs.

Designs are drawn and/or created in Photoshop; printed, then transferred to the substrate.

I then carve the design and print with oil-based inks.

Many prints are created using Japanese washi paper (either hand or machine created).
