Found this gem today about Bill Fick and the art of linocut, and boy, do I love it. I’m a sucker for seeing the process of art, music, or film being made. A behind the scenes look at what will be a great piece of art is just in the beginning stages. For me I always wondered “How do they do that?” and with these videos – I know.
I wish more people shared their process.
Bobby from The Fox Is Black said it best about this video:
“It’s the little things like listening to his pencil or his brush on the paper, or the sounds of the tiny pieces of linoleum being carved away. It’s also inspiring to watch someone so talented do something so technical with seemingly little effort. I promise that the seven and half minutes you spend watching this are worth every second.”
And the fact that he doesn’t have any music behind it makes it more refreshing to watch.
