Brother River

But how can you buy or sell the sky, the land? The idea is strange to us.

The rivers are our brothers. They quench our thirst. The carry our canoes and feed our children. So you must give to the rivers the kindness you would give any brother.
- Chief Seattle, 1855

Brother River 2011 Calendar

A small edition of 25 calendars were printed on heavy glossy card stock and wire bound. $15* includes one calendar and one postcard and 5% of the sale goes to Scenic Hudson land preservation. Additional postcards are $1*. All other moneys go to paying gas and tolls so I can keep driving up and taking photos. Bailey and I are also saving up to get our own kayak... This will also be the final printing, no more calendars will be made after these are gone.

POST September
Postcards also available.


*5% of proceeds from ALL Hudson River based work (including the calendars, postcards, and drawings etc...) will go to Scenic Hudson land preservation.

BohLEIVE it, Hon

My calendars came in and they look AWESOME. Printing more soon...

I finally finished carving and just started printing these bad boys.
print happy
Huzzah! 7X10 inches of lino cut loveliness. I think this is my favorite lino cut I've done to date. Its actually meant to be 2 prints (folded for card or cut center fold to frame) but passable as one image if you aren't eying it too hard. Bailey is my print production manager...

I feel like I am overdue for working on a drawing, but I haven't wanted to start anything in part because of what a mess charcoal makes of everything and how it finds it way onto every object in the basement in a superfine layer of black dust, and the amount of sewing (aka ultra clean) projects I have on my table like the Windhorse prayer flags and a coat for Bailey. In the meantime in addition to my larger linocut I've been working on a few smaller and quicker reliefs/ stamps "don't stop BELIEVing" and "you better BohLEIVE it, Hon!" which go very nicely with my Mr. Boh stamp. More images soon!
