Reduction Printing

I watched this video by Canadian printmaker, Linda Cote, and thought I'd try my hand at reduction printing. I thought I'd be able to make myself keep it simple by doing a small one for my first attempt, but I still drew quite a complicated image. The final print is only 3x3 inches.
I printed the last two layers on their own as well.
Watch Linda Cote's video to see what reduction printing is. For my image, I first sketched it in my sketchpad.
And then I scanned it into the computer and traced it in Photoshop (and reversed it because, uh, I don't know why).
Then I printed the image and transferred it to an easy carve rubber block for carving. I learned a lot doing this. I am looking forward to doing another one.
Thanks for looking!
