My subscription for 2011 has a few new bells and whistles. This year I’ll be producing a set of four multi-color woodblock prints printed in the traditional Japanese style of Moku Hanga, where water-based pigments and rice paste are used to print the relief prints rather than oil based inks which are rolled onto the surface of a woodcut with a brayer.
The prints this year, as they were last year, are storyprints, meaning that each print will be printed with text and represent a vignette of a broader but untold story. The theme for this years subscription suite of prints is the moon. They will all involve the moon in some form or fashion. See the first print in the subscription here in this post. The text is printed and dusted with gold pigment; it reads “I promise, no matter what happens, we’ll be alright.”
One print will be completed and shipped every quarter. There are two options available this year to subscribers:
- Prints can be delivered as they were last year, where I provide a handmade case with the first print and the remaining prints shipped flat to be either inserted into the case or framed by you. I also had a new paper marbled by marbling artist Steve Pittelkow especially for this years edition.

- Prints can be delivered already framed. Two framing options are Natural (pictured here) and Satin black finish (the frame profiles are the same) I frame all my work for all my gallery shows and home in the natural.
