Planning: I chose the manatee because I did a project on them in 5th grade. I found 3 photos of manatees on the internet and after I sketched them I asked the people around me which one I should use for the lino cut. Most people chose sketch #1 because the manatee was eating a carrot.
I would often have too little ink. A couple of times I had a bit too much in some places on the paper. I also cut too deep or too thin sometimes. The second day of cutting I cut my self. I kind of forgot how it happened, "I all just happened so fast."
