Woodcut is the name of the game in today's episode. Valerie Lueth of Tugboat Printshop joins me on the podcast to talk about the work she produces in her garage studio in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania. Tugboat has been running for a long time, and Valerie really has a system figured out to make a living selling woodcut relief prints. She keeps it simple and follows her interests, and all throughout her work you can see a consistent voice and style that is indelibly Tugboat. Today we talk about everything related to carving wood including tools and process, as well as how she runs the business side of her operation. With 12 years under her belt, she's definitely got a lot of insight to share and I hope it's interesting and useful to all of you print hustlers out there.
