The professor's studio on the make-believe island of

in his fantasy region of Emeralda

Here I am inking my copper test plate that I engraved for the first Halfwood Press - a little part of which you can see on the right side of this picture. Learn more about my press-making project by reading part of my book, Halfwood Press: The Story.
Above is a trial proof (number 10) from the copperplate engraving that I am inking in the photo at the left. I call it my "practice" print; a printmaker has to practice all the time, like a musician or other performance artist.
