Introduction In the Spring of 2009, I will be on sabbatical, working on paintings and relief engravings. Relief engraving is the "new" wood engraving—in that the traditional wood for engraving, Boxwood,is so scarce and expensive that it has been replaced with Resingrave, a synthetic resin which carves like wood at a much reduced cost, and sizes that can be larger than traditional wood engraving. My work will be on a series of portraits of historical scoundrels—individuals who have shown incredible industry and despotism within their lifetimes.
