THREE NEW MOTH PRINTS available on my Etsy Shop!

These three new handprinted woodblock prints are now available on my Etsy site!!  They are available individually or as a set of three, and each one is 6.5" x 6.5".

This one is called "Tiger's Eye Moth" because of the color and the 4 "eyes" on the moth's wings.

This one is called "Moth of Death," but most people who see it don't think of a skull but rather that it is wearing big sunglasses. There are actually only 4 of these available in green and the others are a grey/purple.

And finally this one is called "Setting Sun Moth" because I think it looks like it is slowly sinking into the waves below it.

 I spent a lot of time on these guys, carving the wood blocks by hand, then inking each one 20-24 times and smoothing the paper over the inked block.  I think they turned out great and I hope you will head over to Etsy and take a look!

NEW PRINT available: The Bearded Man in the Woods

This is an 8 x 10 giclee print of an original graphite drawing entitled "The Bearded Man in the Woods" which is now available for purchase on my Etsy site. The original was drawn in 1999 and was published as the cover of the poetry magazine "Wood Wispers." Each print is numbered out of 30 and signed by me. The print will come unmatted and unframed but is a standard size and would look great with a black frame as pictured!
Here is a detail of the eyes...
I've got lots more to come, just in time for Christmas presents, so stay tuned...
