Once

Last spring I participated in a group show in which the artists were given a theme and told to create a piece using whichever media they chose. The theme was just a single word, “once.” This is the print that I made for the show, which is now available in my etsy shop:

This print deals with the loss of childhood and the power of nostalgia. I wanted the print to look old, like a faded illustration that might be found in an old book for children full of frightening cautionary tales about becoming an adult.



The print is fairly large and was made using a bunch of different lino blocks that were each printed, then reduced, then printed again.
