After six colors it is almost done. I have to finish carving away the gray layer, and then the final layer of ink will be black.

Working on a new print--Ogunquit Crow
I haven't posted to Illustration Friday in a while, but I have been working on a new block print. I took pictures last summer while visiting the Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine. It was a rainy morning, and I saw this crow hanging out on the rocks by the ocean. I did a few sketches to figure out the layout and colors for a reduction print, and chose a Gomuban plate for this piece. The advantage of this plate is that it can go through the press, but is softer than linoleum.
