A Cover for Dracula!

Hey, like I said, here’s the cover I (finally) made for Dracula!! I don’t know about you, but I like it.

Dracula

So! I’m working on getting ready for the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in July and I’ve been doing a heck of a lot of printing. I’ll also have a heck of a lot of new stuff there that no one’s ever seen before. Oooh, the excitement. After that I’ll be in Guelph for Art on the Street. So you know, come by and stuff.

Anyhow, I’ve been screwing around a bit with my prints as I go (and trying a new ink… with mixed results), so check out this Dracula variation!

Why not?

Why not?

Also, and this is just the peak of exciting, I’ll be selling bookmarks at all the upcoming exhibitions. How could I go on and on about books and not provide bookmarks? Who’s gonna read without a bookmark? Bookmarks.

Waterloo Town Square

Hey, are you reading this on June 25th?? Is it before 5pm? Well shoot, if it is you can come by the Public Square thing in Waterloo Town Square and sees my printmaking. You can sees it real good.

12 – 5, today only!

Lots of printing…

Printing prints, making prints, printmaking, makeprinting, you name it. Yup, I’m a-printmaking over here. A whole ton of it. I have a few printmaking sales coming up and I have to make some serious PRINTS.

Ok, said “prints” enough for you? Talk is cheap, I’ll go ahead and prove it, I will!

Oooooooooohhh... this is a new one!!

Oooooooooohhh... this is a new one!!

I got plenty of stuff brewing here… and plenty of sales coming up. I also FINALLY have a cover for Dracula! Yesss. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’ve been waiting for that to show up for quite some time. But as usual I still have to scan this stuff. But I will. And I’ll post ’em. I’ll also post some updates on when and where the exhibitions are that I’ll be in this summer. Hey, how about that?

Lot No. 249

Man, if you thought Sherlock Holmes was good… man oh man oh man…

I’m just gonna go ahead and say it, Arthur Conan Doyle is the John Singer Sargent of literature. And NOT just because they both have three names, but that’s badass, too.

Anyhow, I’m getting ahead of myself here… Lot No. 249 is a darn good story. It’s 19th century British foppishness at it’s gentlemanly-conduct-ing best.

Oh yeah, and I made a book cover for it!

Lot No 249

I did the sketch and plan for this one like a day after I finished The Jewel of the Seven Stars. It was by far the easiest time planning that I’ve had with a book cover, and maybe even the easiest to carve. So naturally I put it off, assuming it would be boring. But you know what? I think it might be my favourite. It’s got a real crispness to it, and my work is usually a little rough around the edges. Who woulda thought, eh?

The Time Machine

Whew. Well now. It’s been a little bit since the last post here. What happened to weekly posts? Seriously. Just ridiculous.

Anyhow, here’s another lino print book cover!

The Time Machine

Now THIS was a good book. Controversial, you might say? Liiiike, perhaps the ending?? WHAT happened? I know what I think happened… Man oh man.

Thoroughly enjoyable, Mr. Data.
