New image drawing on stone.

Just got back from a family reunion in Memphis.  Worked with many 10 family members on relief (lino) hand-pulled prints.  Several of them did very nice work for their first prints. Think I may have recruited a few new printmakers.  Hopefully, this new stone drawing doesn't reference my recent "family reunion". Trying to finish this stone before I leave for artist residency in Chicago.  This print is for a portfolio called "Hate Breeders" organized by Curtis Readel.  The reference is the crazy political climate in my state of Arizona.  The AZ SB 1070, private prison contracts and the cutting back of state funded medical care. Hard subjects, probably going to alienate some with this.
Need to get back to the stone.  Hope everyone is making art, too.
