Masterbuilt – “Woodblock”

Masterbuilt “Woodblock” – The image that Vinny chose to draw on this instrument was adapted from a photograph taken by Vadim of a Ukrainian Church in his hometown of Kiev. Vadim visits Ukraine often and the area surrounding the church adapted in the drawing is where he was born and raised. To create this image, a solid Holly top was chosen for its tight grain that would allow Vinny to draw with great detail various shades and textures using Prisma colored pencils. Considered by fine artists to be the best colored pencils available, these Prisma pencils allowed Vinny to replicate various color tones found in both Vadim’s original image as well as those found in Toshi Yoshida’s prints.
