Subject: The Exciting Conclusion
Posted by: Sherrie York

At the conclusion of last week's episode, Use-Only-Five-Colors Woman was engaged in an epic wrestling match with the nefarious Just-One-MORE-Color Woman for possession of the end-of-winter grasses linocut.

The battle raged on for some time, as our superhero and her super-adversary were of equal strength, skill, and stubbornness. (Emphasis on stubbornness.) In the end a compromise was reached... a stalemate, if you please.

UOFC Woman conceded that JOMC Woman could try a sixth color on just one print. Just to appease curiosity.

This is an embiggenable image... so you can decide the victor for yourselves.

This action solved nothing, as both versions were deemed meritorious. In the end UOFC Woman and JOMC Woman each took possession of the half of the edition. There was some grumbling heard from both sides, and perhaps there was a little surreptitious fist-shaking behind backs, but territory sharing was embraced in the interest of studio-wide peace.

Whew! That was a close one.

Subject: Back and ready to print! Last of the citizen city blocks
Posted by: Maria

I had a brief vacation in which the plan was to recharge the ol' batteries so that I could get ready for the upcoming print party. Life usually deals whatever hand it has in mind for us and we are simply obligated to cope. Without going into detail, batteries are now in the red but I trust the drive through the backroads of Nevada, California and Oregon will take care of a much needed energy boost. And there's always Bustelo coffee...

In any case, I did get to see the big bustling city of Miami just in time to get inspired to fill in the missing blocks. And I saw a brief whisper of the Everglades, alligators and all and regained a bit of my Cuban-ness. So we move forward. Here are the latest arrivals.

Rachel Silber from Melrose, Massachusetts USA writes: It was a challenge and a pleasure to work at a much smaller scale than I usually do. 

Julio Rodriguez from Skokie, Illinois USA sends a cool image and writes this: My contribution to the City of the World project is the "Baren-movil". As the city's wheels turn the community quietly plays it parts fostering and educating the world on the Art of relief printmaking. Many thanks to Maria Arango-Diener for another amazing puzzle-print project. Keep them coming !!!
