Roman Klonek has a spot for old-fashioned cartoons and modern block printing styles. In the 90s he studied Graphic Arts in Dusseldorf and discovered a passion for woodcut. Slanted Publishers' latest book gives a detailed insight into this Dusseldorf-based artist's working process and the background of his woodcut prints.
The woodcut technique is particularly interesting, as it is primarily known as a 'very old' medium and therefore often creates a surprise effect, especially with contemporary motifs. Woodcut Vibes features a variety of whimsical characters, often half animal/half human in preferably curious surroundings and embarrassing situations.
