The Great War God, Huitzilopochtli

Strife, discord and anxiety never seem to take a holiday ; beheadings, fear of  yet another plague, discord afar and close at home.  Our patron saint seems to be Huitzilopochtli, perhaps that was my motivation in crafting these prints.

Five plate relief paper on mulberry paper

This five plate print was my most ambitious so far. I’m happy I gave it a shot, but it needs tweaking. I think the two color plate is more effective.

My studio looked like a Chinese laundry during the curing times.

Of all my prints I think this is the one I have cut the best, I’m beginning to slowly feel more confident putting blade to plate.

I’m submitting a few of my prints in an upcoming holiday show, the War God will amongst the offerings, wish him well.

Take care, Lg
