This woodcut print is called "Lucas" by the famous artist Chuck Close. Close is notorious for his amazing printmaking and realistic portraits. The process of making a woodcut is very difficult and time consuming. First, Close had to draw his image on a block of wood. Next, he or she must gouge out the parts of the wood that they do not want to be printed. Then the image is pressed on paper to transfer the ink and complete to piece.
