Surly Seagull framed

Finally got this guy dressed to the nines in a frame from Newfoundland Canvas. He's the last painting available from the series of Victorian animals I started this year (message me for pricing if you're interested). Now that market season has ended, I'm looking forward to a break from producing t-shirts, embossings and prints so that I can get back to painting.

The original postie

Santa mulls over the new system in the December issue of the Northeast Avalon Times. A dig at the recent announcement by Canada Post to eliminate home delivery. Imagine if Santa took such measures.... not very merry.

Cornelius Cod linocut

Printed this guy last week. Cornelius is the third in the postage stamp series I started this year. Last night I started working on screens for t-shirts but had some issues. The short of it is that I ruined 3 screens over the course of the evening. Then I had to spend this morning cleaning, de-hazing, and de-greasing said screens. Frustrating. So this afternoon I got the Cornelius plate out and spent some time making prints... clearly relief printing is my happy place. Made some nice crisp prints that I was really pleased with. Found my center again. Ready to try the screens again tomorrow.

Linocut progress

Chip-chip-chipping away at the latest (and probably last for the series) postage stamp linocut. Hoping to have prints available for markets on the weekend. Will post a proper pic when he's presentable.
