Art Deco Zeus - 2 Color Reduction Linocut - 5"x7"

    Newer Older

    Loosely inspired by my memories of the beautiful art deco relief work in Rockefeller Plaza, New York.

    I thought I'd try to force myself into simplifying forms and lines a bit as I kind of went overboard with my last block and it didn't quite work out. Not sure what to think of this one quite yet, but I'm planning on making a similar cut of Hera next.

    Printing went alright - I always have a hard time with linoleum, but I got an edition of 11 greenish-blue ones and then another edition of 8 in blue.

    If you are interested in purchasing this print or any others, they are for sale over here at my etsy shop.
