Pittsburg natives, Tugboat Printshop have been carving out their niche in the handmade print sector the past few years. The husband and wife duo established Tugboat back in 2006 with the initiative to revive original handmade art & prints. What they do is quite impressive on a few levels. The first being the dynamic art that they create for their projects, second and probably the most impressive, is the wood block carving that they do by hand. The amount of time and craftsmanship involved in carving out each individual wood block for each color involved int the pressing is amazing. Recently, they were commissioned to do a print for The Decemberists and the outcome was very appropriate for the band and the type of music that they play. Check out the detail and the process for each wood block carving. Damn.
