I am excited to post my first blog on this new site! My blogs will mostly consist of news and information about my various studio and print shop projects. Occasionally, I will post info and images about inspirational sources. So, stay tuned!
After some thought, I will begin this blog by sharing my final letterpress project for 2015 - my annual Christmas card! I have been making a card since 1985. It is a tradition that brings me joy since I am such a lover of 'snail mail'!
I have been exploring bird imagery through drawing and print for a couple of years. Consequently, I decided to use a bird image on this year's card. Additionally, I am most disturbed by the violence occurring in our world. I combined a mourning dove reduction linocut print with a bit of handset metal type. Take a look at the end result!
