Protest Crude Disasters, Linocut

UPDATE: This is what the final linocut looks like. I omitted the oil pipeline from Orange Julius' head since I thought it was too weird and distracting. The linocut is on display at Trumpocolypse: What Now? at the Sacred Gallery in NYC and there is a high-res, downloadable, digital version at Thanks to Blond Jenny who posted some shots of the opening on the Sacred Gallery facebook page:

This is the initial plan for a 18" x 24" woodcut poster that I may be carrying at the Women's March on January 21, 2017. I'm also working on a more woman-oriented one that might be more appropriate. I can save this one for a more general and/or environmental protest. I'll be working on this for the next couple of weeks. This will be one side of the poster.

The other side will be this:
Silkscreened on foam core. Two very different styles, I know, but without access to silkscreen facilities for the next few weeks, I opted to do a woodcut which I can print in my studio.

Solo Show at the Paramount in Peekskill, NY

I was asked on Tuesday to exhibit my work at the Paramount Hudson Valley theater gallery. The thing is, they wanted the show up by today. So, basically, I pulled together a solo show, designed the posters and helped hang the show in two days. The framed work was packed, delivered and hung by late Friday afternoon and the posters were also printed by then. I have honestly never pulled a show together this fast. Whew!

Reflecting on one of my favorite #MLK quotes for some #MondayMotivation.
