Back to work: New linocut in progress

Okay then. No more 2013. Goodbye and good riddance, I say. And welcome 2014! It's about time you got here.

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.

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.

    printmaking is a reasonable activity for grown-ups, just maybe not a sane one ;)

    here's to more printing fun.
