a linocut for Our Rarer Monsters

This is the first of eight linocuts that I am producing for "Our Rarer Monsters", a book of poetry by Noel Sloboda that will be published in 2012 by sunnyoutside press. I'm planning on posting process shots and finished linocuts from the suite of prints as I make them, so tune in over the next couple of months to cheer and/or jeer, as the results merit.

Well, nuts.

One of the pleasures in my life is to wake up to see the sunrise from the top of our hill - here's this morning's edition:

Sadly, one of the pieces of that view is being chopped down today:

How could they cut that particular tree down? Don't they know that it is always beautifully silhouetted in the sunrise?

Ah well. My 5 year old daughter reassured me this morning while we were waiting for the school bus that there are lots of other trees that could be my favorite.

Library Card

Computers have made some things a little less fun. Kindergartners checking out library books is one of those things.

Light Switch, from the "art for jerks" series

Interested in purchasing "Light Switch"? The price is based on a sliding scale determined by the prestige of the location of the light switch. Wall-mounted toggle switch and electrical current not included.

Drawing to be Destroyed

Hopefully transformed, instead of destroyed. A drawing on a linoblock that I've just started cutting.
