Ive been having some fun making gifs lately so I took some photos while sizing paper for my fox print and put this together.
Got a few proofs printed yesterday. Heres a few pics, and a glimpse at my beautiful laundry room studio.
Everything turned out pretty nice. the print is a little busy, but after I clean up a few things here and there it will bring a little visual balance.
Finished carving the woodblock for my Fox print from my photo on my canoe trip on Isle Royale this summer. Im looking forward to inking it up and pulling a proof, hopefully tomorrow.
This block is going to be printed then I will screen print the photo colors overtop using the CMYK process. Essentially I am replacing the black color information with a black key image woodblock.
My earlier post lays it out so you can see what im talking about.

I think I have a new favorite animal. The Secretary Bird is the best combination of color, style, and just … badass
some process shots from my latest print. preforming an image transfer using acrylic gel medium to essentially glue the ink from a laserjet print to the block. Then wetting the paper and rubbing it away leaves the image ready to be carved.
This is a practice block seeing as i am experimenting with a number of new processes. more photos soon.
My Uncles dog Georgie is the proud mother of 10 puppies. I just happened to have good timing to be at the farm for opening weekend for deer hunting to be there when they were born.
Not to long ago my mother found this little gem tucked away in the closet of my bedroom growing up. It was a time capsule I had made When I was ten years old. 15 Years ago almost to the day I stuffed a peach yogurt cup with two signed and dated drawings and a letter to whomever found my treasure.
With all spelling errors intact, including misspelling my own name ha ha, the letter reads as follows:
Hi if your reading this you probably have found my time capsule. If your wondering when this letter was wrote I will tell you. this letter was wrote in November 17, 1998 when I was 10 years old. My name is Stanley lenard S. I lived in the hous this was buryied ly and if I’m still alive when you find this please conntact me if you can. the adress that I lived on was …street…WI. If I am a famous artist you will be rich and wealthy. My mother and father’s names are Dale and Brenda S. (with a phonetical spelling added) I drew some picturs for the person that found the time capsle and only for that person.
And now I say goodby,
Well little guy, not a rich and famous, but we did become an artist, so I guess dreams do come true.
