I've been on Damara vacation for about 5 days because bossman is out of town (hope you had fun) and have been multitasking between several collages and naps. Here is where I am at with this deer collage. The paper textures get lost in the photo, so I'll just mention the deer is printed on faux woodgrain. Now if I could get these papers to stick to eachother I'll be in business. Next step, color!

I have been reading Rainer Maria Rilke this week inspiring a piece about the night sky. He begins a series of poems with "Nights like these..." Here is a proof of the first image for my sky.
I may or may not set the sky in a giant phrenology head with vignettes inside the sections of the mind, something i've been meaning to do for ages, but that impulse may have come from watching Hellraiser II yesterday.
I designed this print a million years ago with the intention of printing it on a letterpress. I used to print with Jan at Kindling Press but since they are not around anymore I'm not sure when/ how it will get editioned or if it ever will. With this said, I got impatient and decided to carve the block and color it in digitally to satisfy my need to bring it to life.
