Subject: Catspaw with Cat
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

Time to print the kitty on the background.

Magenta seems to be a mix of red and blue, closer to blue.  I'll see how that looks.  I'll see if I want it ghostly (watered down) or more substantial (w/ white).

Nah, went with more of a burgandy kitty.

Striking, I think.  8-]  I think I'll call it Catspaw.

And here's the finished product:

Subject: A New Era ...
Posted by: Dave Bull

I think that when I look back on it from sometime far in the future, today will be one of those days that sticks out as a 'big one'. Yasuhiro Lee started with us today, and going by what I've seen so far of his attitude and abilities, I hope that he'll be with us for a long time to come!

But let's start with a snapshot from the 'office' upstairs, where Yasui-san is getting ready for tomorrow's 'back number' print shipping, running off sheets on our big Epson laser:

We then slip downstairs, where Ishigami-san is mounting some prints ...

Right behind her, Tsushima-san is of course beavering away busily at her current print edition (which 'sold out' of her original batch ... putting her under the gun to get a new batch finished as soon as possible!):

Subject: I lied. NOW it's finished.
Posted by: Sherrie Y

Okay, okay. I didn't mean to lie, but I sat with "Pas de Ducks" for a couple of days and something about it just didn't feel right. Maybe it's because it was the most subtle piece I'd ever done and although I admire subtlety in the work of others, I can't seem to get comfortable with it in my own work. The main part of the reflection needed to be another shade darker.

"Pas de Ducks," reduction linocut on Awagami Kozo paper, 8" x 12"

I didn't do any more carving, this transparent dark green went right over the top of the previous color.  I'm still going to call it 22 colors. Pretend the next-to-last color never happened. It can be our little secret.
