Cloudy Collection

First Edition - Volume 2 - Who are the People in your Neighborhood?

I'm really excited to have a print in the First Edition - Volume 2 of David Huyck's Cloudy Collection. The theme was "Who are the people in your Neighborhood?'. At the time I was living in Lunenburg,NS which is world famous for ship building and is the home port of the Bluenose. It was a pretty easy and obvious choice to go with an old ship builder. Here's some pictures of the actual prints which are letterpress prints made on 4″x6″ white bamboo paper using vegetable-based inks on a Vandercook press. Printed with all wind-power by Boxcar Press in Syracuse, NY, the edition is limited to 100 sets of prints.

Spaghetti Legs

This is the first page of a new book I decided to do. It's going to be a simple book of characters with no real theme, so I don't box myself in and get bored. I'm using grey and black to keep it photocopier friendly and once I get 20 characters done it will be time to print and assemble some books!
