The Elephant Hotel

I found this photograph of what was a real elephant hotel on Coney Island.  It fascinates me.  Also look at the amazing drawing used to illustrate the proposed floorplan.  Strange times.

New stone drawing

Trying to print this edition today.  This is the stone drawing.  I did a gum base with a spot 4 drop etch.  The title of this print is "Queen for a Day".

Taking a break to enjoy the weather.


Took a break and went to Sabino Canyon with 2 amazing printmakers.  Beautiful day.

"The Fireman", finished print signed and shipped...

Detail of "The Fireman"

The next edition requires "cut"  paper.  A first for me.

Finished print has 3 printed colors and one hand tinted color.

"Through the Looking Glass", lithograph

The dark blue image was drawn on the stone and the pink is pochoir. Strange experiment.
