Whale Song

  • Hand-painted linocut

    12 x 9 inches

    Edition of 275


    Whale Song was originally cut as the sample art for the book proposal for Lucky Hares and Itchy Bears. My plan for the book pages changed significantly between this initial idea and the final design. See Such a Fine Dancer, which was the ultimate idesign for the whale.


    Sizes listed are of the linocut images themselves; I leave an additional white border of paper on all sides.



  • Linocut Notes



    My linocuts are printed on cotton rag paper the old-fashioned way: I carve with knives and gouges to create my imagery in slabs of linoleum. Then I roll ink over the surface, lay cotton paper on top, and crank the block through my etching press. I repeat this process for each impression in the edition, which means: If an image is in an edition of 40, I do this 40 times! After the prints dry, I generally hand-paint them, often with many layers of color, making each print a unique work of art.
