Hello all,

Just thought you'd like to see the finished print of Fishers of Men. Here's
the link. (you can ignore
the etching.)

The light blue plate is unfortunately slightly larger than the rest; I
didn't have the time (or the courage, ha) to cut it down at the end of this
very busy semester, but I plan to do it next semester. I also only got an
edition of four, although I was planning to do six; I'm using oil-based
inks, and so the larger plates take a long time to roll, and I badly
misregistered one and forgot to do the dark blue plate on another. Oops!

Has anyone else ever done prints with untempered masonite? I have a friend
who swears by the stuff, and it cuts really quickly, but it doesn't seem to
hold detail well.

It's been fascinating to read about this unknown artist - kirkpatrick? I
hope that that search proves fruitful!!
