2013 started off on a roll (pardon the pun).  I had been previously making some simple block prints (mainly examples that I’d use in class) which I’d make stickers out of, but I hadn’t really worked seriously with lino blocks since college.

Getting some new blades motivated me to work detailed again.  My first couple prints were more studies than anything, making block print versions of several drawings/paintings I had done previously.

Vexillology

I was reading an article recently about city flags, which featured some unusual imagery.  At the suggestion of my fiance, I drew a couple that we found amusing.

Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia

Pardubice, Czech Republic

Krasnoturyinsk, Russia

Perm, Russia

Viļaka, Latvia

Siauliai, Lithuania

I’m still looking for more flags, and will soon start looking up interesting coat of arms to draw. Stay tuned for more.

Death Followed By a Question Mark

An oddball in my photographic catalog, this is among my favorites. It logically should have been a picture of friend posing for a technical assignment, but this was the end result (no alterations on my part). I was using a 4×5 camera with instant Polariod film. It was either defective or crushed, which resulted in this eerie image. Not really the image you’d expect when getting your picture taken.
