Making (linocut) hay while the sun shines

Literally! Making linocut hay. Or at least making an image of hay out of lino. Fun, eh? The crazy, never-ending map icon project reappeared last week with a new list of 10 more images to create. I wasn't quite sure what to do about item #7 (hay), but I'm hoping this bale will do the trick. What do you think?

Everything's at fever pitch again... how DOES this keep happening? I've got three illustration projects, a writing project, a design project, three multi-day workshops to prep, an art festival to get ready for AND this weekend is Salida's annual ArtWalk. And, gee... one of these days I'm going to actually get back to work on my own stuff. Really I am.

If you're in Salida this coming weekend, stop on by the Maverick Potter on F Street. On Saturday the local linocutter (that's me) will be in da house, as will the local Stickist and the potter of maverick tendencies. I'm pretty sure there won't be any hay bales, but you just never know.


  1. I think the

    Life is like this, isn't it? All of a sudden it goes from a relaxing pace to crazy busy and back.

    Good luck with your all of your art projects!

  2. It's like that this time of year isn't it..... enjoy the ride ;o)

  3. Yup, it's one of those times! Thanks for the reminders to enjoy this part of the journey, too. Sometimes I forget!
