After wrapping up a tie session the other night I looked up at a Jaris print that I picked up last summer. It's a flamboyant trout-like fish flailing in the air. Knowing that Chelsea had some printing materials in her art pile for www.thebiglake.etsy.com I asked her for them.
With speedball carver in hand I sat down and created the first of hopefully many stamps that represent the things that I do. It's far from being a piece of art, but I think it's very cool in a raw way. That's what I appreciate about block printing; it can be extremely detailed and clean or a little more emotive and raw. Tell me what you think:
It's the silhouette of a wingless Adams fly, or as I call them: gnats.
More will follow. I just need to get outside and get some inspiration.
Big news coming down the pipeline soon. Don't want to say anything until we are 100% ready.
