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?
Early bird and a cat squaring off over lunch. In the garden with grass and plantings (likely agapanthus, my favorite alien flower). Plantings go diagonally across the back. Maybe some greenery in the foreground or the mid-ground.
Bookkeeper getting more detailed. The detail I couldn't get into the etching. Also I'm really liking the color.
Paleo-Unicorn is a failed print ~ the hand was all smeary. But adding color makes the whole ting dynamic. Color doesn't come across bright enough, nor does the gold and silver shimmer, but it's rather nice. Tina told me to stop, it was done. ;-]
