Dusted off the cobwebs and cleaned off the rust, all to get back into the screen printing mode! Had some serious fun making an edition of 15 with this three layer print.

“Redness in the east beyond the mountain
The Wheel begins to turn anew
Turning ever towards the Sun
Garlands adorn a chariot, aflame
Blood runs from the flank of a wounded stag
Turning inwards, all beings bow low
Unconcealed she flies
Then hidden by snow
Eyes pale voice of night”

Book project for Design + Image. Instructor: Martin French

My school’s illustration tumblr is a hell of a lot faster at posting my stuff than I am. So here’s a shameless self reblog of my work. 

My newest book, Veiled Elder Futhark!

Veiled Elder Futhark is an illustrated book featuring 10 selected runes from the Elder Futhark. Each rune is illustrated with branches of a particular breed, and then reflected next to a reinterpretation of the rune’s meaning and significance comprised within an illustration.”

Finally I can share this piece I did for my best lady pal, @fangorn_guardian of her cat son, Solnishko!! We celebrated her 21st in Las Vegas this weekend, and it is definitely one for the books. Now that the carefree fun is over, it’s time to hit the art making.
