Carvings and Prints
This morning was as dark as 6 PM and chilly and rainy. I looked outside around 8:00 and saw Genghis and his family trudging down the puddle-rich street to walk the dog. They walk in a group every single day, but I've never seen them do it so trudgingly as this morning!
I drew the child form on a piece of rubber eraser stamp material in preparation for making a stamp out of the design, This was an extremely slow and exact measured drawing, something I haven't done in a long time. In order to get the proportions just right I had to measure and compare, drop plumb lines and sight along horizontals. I just used a drawing pencil and drew right on the piece of rubber, erasing mistakes as I made them.
