Tugboat Printshop

Absolutely amazing work coming from Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth, the artists behind Pittsburgh, PA based Tugboat Printshop. Tugboat specializes in incredibly intricate woodcut prints, like the gorgeous 4 color woodcut printed wedding invitations shown above. A bit more from the Tugboat Printshop portfolio:

You can purchase select prints in the shop on the Tugboat site, and you can see more about their printing process both on their site and in their Flickr stream. I love looking at the in process and finished woodcuts, which are works of art in and of themselves. Swoon…

    Aren’t they awesome? Ooh, I’d love to see their work in person! I wonder if they’ll be doing any craft shows in the Boston or Rhode Island area anytime soon?

    I love their work! I met them at Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco, and their prints in person are amazing! And they both are wonderful too 🙂
