Grateful Bears

I recently finished up these two linocuts, inspired by the Grateful Dead Bears.  They were originally sketches for a Splintered Sunlight poster I worked on a couple months ago, but I put them aside and forgot about the until recently.  I have been working  mainly with linocuts this year, and was eager to find something new to carve.  The first bear is a mashup between a bear and the skull and roses image (aka Bertha), and the second is an accurate bear skull. I’ve also be trying out new printmaking techniques, so the Bertha Bear is a 3 color reduction print, and I plan to do some handcolored versions of the other bear.  I currently have a small edition of both (or as a set) in my shop.

I’m also currently working on a shop that focuses on my printmaking work.  It’s a work in progess, so more items are being added constantly, both old and current prints.
