Printmaking is the core of Studio Shappy’s practice. Woodcuts in particular contain an economy of distinctive and beautiful marks inherent to the carving process. The quality of line used is difficult to achieve by purely digital means, which is why I frequently use hand carved imagery for digital and analog projects of a wide variety. Studio Shappy has uniquely used signature woodcut imagery to develop original graphics and illustrations for both in-studio and client projects. This method has been deployed with a number of clients, including RWS Art Studios, Live + Work in Maine, HMDC and more. Keep your eyes peeled for our very own brand, Loamy, which features woodcut graphic tees and other merch sold exclusively in our shop.
