A few weeks ago, I completed my Japanese woodcut of a brain based on a Victorian-era anatomical drawing. Although we were supposed to print a “kaleidoscope” (the same image printed 4 times, rotated around a central point) in 4 different colours, my instructor saw my trial print in red and said that it looked good enough (“The enemy of good is better,” he said). I titled it Occipital because that’s the part of the brain that controls vision, although I’m pretty sure you can’t see the lobe in the image I used.

Right after I finished carving the main image...
