Believe it or not I was still trying to get work done during the several weeks of transiency and illness. I needed some sanity! Of course, I'm not too sure if this linocut as it's unfolding so far can be counted as sane, but you know what I mean.
The first step was posted some time in the last few weeks, but let's just start over and make the process all tidy, shall we? You know how much I like tidy.
|Step 1: Plain ol' blue. Know what it is yet?|
|Step 2: Blue to gray blend. How about now?|
|Step 3: A spot-inked chunk of red. Does it make sense now?|
No, it probably doesn't make any sense yet. And to tell you the truth, I already have two more steps finished and it still doesn't make much sense. Either I have gone completely round the bend on this one or we're all suffering from a shared delusion that printmaking is a reasonable activity for grownups and people who need to make a living. Sounds like a great way to start a new year to me.
