I have always loved making Linocut Prints. The feeling I get when I pull a new print is kind of magical to me. It’s like hitting the sweet spot on a baseball bat, or knowing that shots going to go in the second It leaves your fingertips. I found a few plates that I cut years ago today and decided to make a few prints. They are not great because I have no printing press and the ink I have isn’t the best. In any case, it was fun to feel that feeling.
I just finished this little painting while I’m gearing up to do a bunch of linocuts. It was painted at the Oak tree in Green River so if there are little hairs in the paint I can’t guarantee that they are from the paint brush. Up, Locker, Westside. #king #painting #blackandwhite

The Suicide King on handmade paper from old train paperwork. Mostly manifest trains. From now on, nothing but Zs and deadheads. #King #suicideking #playingcards #cardistry #blackandwhite

Stuck in Green River, I guess I will paint.
If it has anything to do with gambling, casinos or playing cards, I’m into it right now. I miss my family, but I keep telling myself this will be worth it. Being on the road takes some getting used to. I’m still not sure if it is something that I want to do or not. So if nothing else I have time to get back into creating some art. I’m sure it will get better the longer I’m out here.
I will add this to the online store.
