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.

This is the cartoon I came up with once I started thinking of it as a tapestry instead of a woodcut.
Can do either, or both. 8-]
Cartoon with swirls around stars (like a tapestry).
Cartoon with star echos like a woodcut.
