This woodcut is titled Geinformeerdo (Dutch for "enlightened"). The image is derived from a sketch that I made of a man on a train in the Netherlands.
This is a two-color woodcut. The image above illustrates the woodcut process. Image 1: the block is 1/3 cut. Image 2: the block is fully cut except for a few areas which were cut out during the proofing process. Image 3: the block is inked for printing. Image 4: the first color has been printed from block 2 (not shown). Image 5: the final print.
