FRANKENSTIEN IIThree block linocut
Proof






NIETZSCHE

This a linocut. It hangs in my home still.
It is a copy of an engraving from an old
Nietchze book. I like old engravings and
it was a challenge to do it in linoleum.
There is no credit given in the book to
the artist who printed the original.

BREAKFAST

There was a time I would have cigarettes
and coffee for breakfast, but I quit the smokes
years ago.

Linocut - Proof




FRANKENSTEIN

A simple two color print on linoleum.
Similar in style to some paintings I
was doing at about the same time,
early '80s.

REEDS

A very simple, Japanese inspired
woodcut. Very small, about 7x3".
# 1 of 4




LOVERS

'The Lovers' was influenced by German
Expressionist print making. This is
a linocut about 8x6".
# 1 of 20



THE MARINER

The Mariner is a lonely man having
a drink or more, straight from the bottle
late at night. It is a linocut.
#3 of 20




HEAD II

This is a 12x8" woodcut. I always felt
the grain of the wood added to the
effectiveness of the print.




TWINS

This is a linocut about 6x6". It's very simple,
but I have always liked it.
#2 of 25




HEAD I

This was among the first prints I ever did.
It is a linocut that I finished in school.
I probably copied the image from a
photograph or a concert poster.
