Once the first image was carved, the second one had to be created so that it would register with the first one. The first block was printed with water-based ink, and then the image was transferred to the second block by rubbing the paper face down with the wet ink on top of the second block. The second block could now be carved to add the color. Because the color was too close to ink up between the red tie and grey part of the jacket, part of the block was sawed off. When going through the press you ink it separately and then put the block together like a jigsaw puzzle.
Proofs are made of the image with water-based ink and hand rubbing tools as seen below. In between proofs more carving is done. Once the image looks right, its time to print through the press.
