Printmaking is the art of making pictures and printing them from prepared plates or blocks. There are many types of printmaking and most of them tends to differ a lot. Without printmaking, digital printing would not exist today. Printmaking also also makes it easier for the general public to access art since it is more inexpensive than other forms of art. It allows artist to be able to show their work on a much larger scale and even make copies.
Printmaking is revolutionary because not only did it inspire the thought digital printing, it also allowed artist to do more things. Instead of having to draw or carve the same thing over and over again, they could just make a copies so time can be saved. This also allows artist to become more creative with their work as new opportunities are opened.
An example of printmaking is the woodcut method. Woodcut is a relief printing technique that is done by carving out an image in a block of wood and then inking the negative space around the carved image. I find this type of printmaking interesting because I notice that it seems pretty easy to do compared to the other types of printmaking and the outcome of the image comes out very detailed and clean. I wonder how long it takes to do this type of printing and how easy it is to carve into the wood. What if you need a certain type of wood in order to do this type of print?
Printmaking is a way that people make art, there are many different forms of printmaking, and it’s a popular way to make art. Many believe that Daniel Hopfer started printmaking. He used it for putting designs on armor. China started using printmaking on paper some time around 105 AD. People started using in different places in the world and printmaking became very popular. Many artist used it because you only needed a few resources like wood, ink, something to carve with (like a u-gouge or chisel), and something to apply your art to. Printmaking became a revolutionary form of making really good art and there were some good art pieces made by it. Being able to make work that looked so professional and like things you see people make professionally on a computer now is amazing, which is why this was so revolutionary.
I really like this image because of how well it shows just what you can do with printmaking. It looks like something someone made with some really good software on a computer. The image doesn’t look like it was made by hand, and it’s colored in so well. The wings look very nice and the black on white makes the image look clean and very professional.
Printmaking is an art form that allows you copy you art work more than once in a few different ways. Some of the ways are through, relief, intaglio, or, lithography. Printmaking was so important because it was the first art was able to be duplicated. This also a reason why it was so revolutionary. It was able to become very widespread and you could get the prints, or at least copies, to other places in the world.
Printmaking is a form of art that you first make a art and then print on a different paper. There are lots of different forms of printmaking like woodcut and engraving. Printmaking is important because it is a cheap and cool way to make quality art. Also you can make copies easily if you wanted to. Printmaking is revolutionary because when printmaking was introduced, lots of people came to like printmaking, and some used printmaking themselves. Again printmaking is se easy to do, anyone can do it if they have the materials.
I find this piece interesting because it shows a wolf in the wild, while it’s snowing, and he’s right next to a tree without any leaves. I get a sense that it’s suppose to represent some idea of a lone wolf. The difference in black and white, and why it’s cool because we can clearly distinct what things are suppose to be. For example the white dots must be snow, it could be rain, but it’s more likely to be snow. Also on the ground the white and the black colors show that the snow hasn’t fully covered the ground. I feel as though this wolf is lonely and it’s showing how harsh the wild can be. I also like how they constantly use lines to make shapes. I notice that it using black as the background might make the viewer think it’s night time. I wonder two things, is this the original copy or not, and what is the artist trying to express using only two colors. Last what if this artist use more colors how would the different colors change the mood of the painting.
Megan Lino’s Fish Print really stands out to me as a viewer. I notice that there is a break in pattern by the fish’s “beams of light” which is really aesthetically pleasing. Also I notice that the things surrounding the fish are being attracted to the fish. I wonder how Lino came up with this idea. I also wonder what message she is trying to say. Although, what if Lino added another fish? I wonder how she would break the pattern once again. This is a great piece of work that probably took days and hours to create, which is why I appreciated it so much.

Printmaking is a very important skill. It has been used for generations, and the art that can be made from prints has no limits. You can essentially make any design that you choose, and replicate it as many times as needed. This is a feature that no other art form has in the same way. Today, I researched relief printing, how it has revolutionized printmaking everywhere, and how it is still an impressive art form today.
Relief printing is a method of printing in which you print from raised images. In this process, a protruding design is created on a surface. It is then covered with ink, and firmly pressed upon a paper to create the desired image. It is a very unique type of printing. It contrasts directly with Intaglio printing, which is where the the image is carved into a surface, and is indented. Some elements of relief printing has inspired other kinds of printing, such as viscosity. It is different from all different types, including lithography, viscosity, and many other kinds of printing. It is distinguished by the fact that the image is on a raised surface, and that is not present in any other methods of printmaking.
The invention of Relief printing is still very controversial and there seem to be more than one origin. It was believed that relief printing was first found in Egypt in 500 BC. It was made by the Egyptians. Their original method was different than the relief printing that we see today. It was made by using a knife and wood, and using ink and pressing the print onto fabric. It was also found very early on in China. In China they carved stone and used it for chinese scholars to read scriptures. They were also used to make seals for letters. It can’t be determined where it originated first, but it is thought that these two different variations of relief printing were created separately but in the same time period. They could have had similar ideas and therefore two possible origin periods.
The history of relief printing has been going on for centuries. Relief printing slowly made its way through the middle east in 100-1300. It began to start in India. They started to use relief printing to mass produce books and famous paintings. In 1300, it was brought back to europe by crusaders and they adopted the method of printing as well. In Germany, a man named Gutemberg created the first printing machine. It spread and relief printing made art easier for everyone. Over time, the art of relief printing has been changed and adapted to different cultures and styles, but it has remained strong through it all. It is now a major part of the art industry.
Relief printing was revolutionary in art because there had never been anything like it before. It was the first printing that could allow mass production of any single work of art. It was also revolutionary because it had many different uses that went far beyond art just for pleasure. Finally, it was revolutionary because it remains a major art form today and never died out and is still making history.
