new linocuts

Earth Blood II (8 color linocut)
Earth Blood I (4 color linocut)
These images grew from listening to a song called "Wolf Lava" by Tribes of Neurot. I think Earth Blood II has been the most successful relief print so far, certainly the most colorful.
Corona Borealis (5 color linocut)
One of my favorite star constellations, I use Corona Borealis as a catalyst for many of my abstract designs. It has been said this constellation has been recorded on cave walls 40,000 years ago.
Vinland or Bust (5 color linocut)
This is a nod to my Nordic ancestry, and to my Alma Mater Augustana.

intaglios in progress

Human Race state 1
For this image I am just replacing the sailing stones of Death Valley with skulls.

Blood Makes the Grass Grow state 1
Its interesting to me that things in nature follow similar patterns; roots, blood vessels, nerve cells......The title of this comes from Dax Riggs the former vocalist from Acid Bath, he uses this phrase often in his songs.
