Saint Scream woodcut 2020 images
Saint Scream
Woodblock print

This started life as an assignment for a 9th grade Global History and Art class I teach. The project was to look at the wonderful Franz Xaver Messerschmidt character heads and do photo self-portraits based on their favorite portrait bust. I picked this one and then did a woodcut based on the photo. The image reminded me of what we all felt like during 2020- a most challenging year, to say the least.
