"Woodcuts are by their very nature brusque, harsh & bold," writes woodcut artist Loren Kantor. "What makes a woodcut portrait come to life are age lines, wrinkles and weathered faces."
Kantor has been posting images of his woodcuts of actors, writers, artists, family, and friends over at Woodcuttingfool for about a year. He sent me this likeness of Charles Bukowski last week and I love it, especially because of the way he's captured the weariness in Bukowski's eyes. Thank you Loren for letting us share this image with our readers. See more about Bukowski here. Read Bukowski's The Laughing Heart (a personal favorite), here.
