Rhino Lino: Artist Proof

Originally uploaded by quartermane

Brad’s been planning to sell his t-shirts (http://www.asabranca.net) at the First Friday artwalk in San Antonio for a while now. After getting the proper licensing and paperwork done, he’ll finally be able to set up shop tomorrow.

But since his license includes the sale of artwork as well, I decided to add a few of my own pieces to the pile. I am going to sell copies of “Kelpie” and “Songbirds” — a collage-style reduction print that my friend Kyra and I collaborated on, and the latest print “Rhino Lino” (that’s a working title).

Rhino Lino is a linoleum-carved relief print, done in the style of woodcuts. The basis of this piece is the famous rhinoceros woodcut by Albrecht Durer with some added elements of water flowing from its horn and jaw. I’ve played with the line quality to achieve a blend of lights and darks. I really enjoyed making it, even if it doesn’t achieve the amount of dimensionality I’d hoped for. It’s my first woodcut, and I hope to improve on these over time.

The price on each piece of this limited edition of 8 is $20.
Songbirds will be $40.
Kelpie will be $25.
