Linocut Cat

I don't do printmaking often (mostly because I don't have a press, or access to one) but occasionally I'll get the urge to do a little linoleum printing because a wooden spoon is almost as good as a press for this process. Sort of. This first image is the digital sketch that I used to transfer onto the blocks.


And here we have the finished print in black and metallic gold. My only regret is that it's nigh impossible to digitally capture the glitter in it. 

Attack of the Killer Ceiling Fan

This is the second of that series. One of my illustrations crushes Victo Ngai came in to our ink class to participate in the critique. She seemed to like my noir fish people enough, but was distracted by the previous crop of this image...

...In which the ceiling fan seemed to be... the source of drama. I guess it makes sense that that would happen with characters that can only stare upward, mouths agape. I did my best.
