On this drawing I added the radiation warning symbol after I drew the tree. I was not really happy with the result but after I toned it down some I decided it would be OK.

Political prints

While not partisan these are political in a sense. The idea is all voters should be informed on the candidates and issues.

Again theme and variation is the rule and all were run in small editions. The yellow in #3 is brighter because I force dried the other editions in the oven at 195 degree. Speedball ink in the reds and yellows color shifts/darkens when heat is applied.

This little print was fun to make. First I carved the mirror image formula and the radiation warning symbol. Then I print the formula in black and forced dryed it with my heat gun. Then I printed the red radiation symbol and also force dryed that. Then final step was to over print in green with the formula block but apply no pressure so the inking was very uneven.

Here is and addition of color to the original black and white print. I added a red background and a light grey pink foreground, which didn't scan well.
