Printmaking... my struggles

Here are some prints I finally brought myself to take pictures of! So there are 2 types of prints here. There are my wood block prints (mickey and Marty2010) which I have much more trouble with than the monotypes (portrait of me and of Jakub). I'm a fairly good painter and thus the monotypes come out pretty nice because its pretty much the same thing. You take a sheet of mylar that you then paint on with relief ink and then print on a paper, so you literally get 1 impression and possibly a ghost print (a very faint version of the original).
