Aaaaand ... here we go, evidence that I've been hard at work at a Secret Location Somewhere On This Planet: the prints. Yes I know they're a little fuzzy but that's only in these web-versions. Piratical types who like to download and use stuff without permission will have to be content with these delicately pixellated images.
They are in reverse-order to that in which I drew them, which (if Blogger doesn't re-align them) will reveal that the most complex-looking one (Subway) was actually done last, and took all of 2 hours to draw (the tones, of course, took MUCH LONGER. But that had more to do with the mechanical problems of blocking some areas, leaving it in the acid for a "bite", taking the plate out again and blocking more areas ... i.e., The Tedium, The Tedium, rather than The Work, The Work).
They're all small -- about 4"x6" -- impressions made from zinc plate. I guess it must be obvious I really enjoyed producing them? I had an excellent guide and master-printer in collaboration with me, so it's no surprise the results are what they are. Amongst the things I like about prints is that the artist can unashamedly admire the results -- the fact that the plates are put through a press makes it seem as if all the hard work was actually done by the machine, rather than the artist.
