Back to work on Gabby. 8-]
Gabby and the Wild Blue Yonder
I want to finish it in time for xmas. ;-] I plan to print it in a very light grey or a tan or ecru (ochre?), then add pastel for color and highlights.

Transferred the Nicky Steampunk cartoon. Started to carve and froze. I wasn't sure how I wanted to carve it, so I ruminated about it. I printed a light version of the Nicky "selfie" and got more detail. Then I got the brilliant idea to print the block in light gray. I'll be adding pastel anyway for color, and I can add black the same way. But Nicky is a gray kitty and that's the best way to get his color.
Also, I'm going to make the airship much bigger in the background. It'll only show the nose, maybe a bit of the gondola.

Tina sealed my pastel woodcuts with final fixative. They look more jeweltone. All along I was thinking they'd look muddy or dark, but I guess fixative has improved since I was in high school.
;-} I'll have pics later.
Pastel'd a mini-dragonfly ~ from an ATC exchange.
3-color technique (red, green, yellow-orange) with purple and a reddish brown in the background. Also a thin line of dark blue under the body to make it more 3-D.
Worked on a new chop.
I prefer the rectangular one. Looks more like two separate letters.
Square is ok, more chop-like. Have to see if it reads like an e and an s.
So what size?
About that I'd say.
