I just completed a new screenprint. The first one I have done in months. I wasn't able to print this myself, though. I had to have Jay print it up due to me having hands full of baby. It's for a set of prints that are raising money for a friend with cancer. The proceeds from the print set sales will help to cover his medical costs. Check it out HERE; lots of wonderful artists are involved. The photos above are respectively: my ink color notes to Jay, the original line drawing, and the finished four color screenprint.
I am fascinated by narwhals. I made a print of some a couple of years ago. I also have a photograph taken of a big group of male narwhals popping up through a hole in the ice, by Paul Nicklen. Nicklen just did a fantastic TED talk. He tells of his encounter with an Antarctic leopard seal. I had read about this particular encounter somewhere else, but to hear Nicklen tell it himself is a real treat. You can watch his talk HERE.
