I just got my new tools from McClain’s and some resingrave given to me by Russ Weicking for learning how to woodcut. Russ also let me try out his tools last weekend so I knew which ones I liked. Thanks again Russ! The Spitstickers are my favorite. The amount of detail you can get is amazing compared with the linoleum. I am going to illustrate a Russian Folk Tale as my first experiment in wood engraving.
I made this animation for the Moondoggies for their song Empress of the North. The album is called Tidelands and comes out October 13th.
If anyone is interested, I am selling individual frames from the animation- each one is hand watercolored. Thanks go to everyone who helped out- Amanda Moore, Adam Powers, Kent Colony, and my parents Brian and Laurel Christie!
My animation will be playing OCTOBER 2, SATURDAY AT 7PM at the Northwest Film Forum with a bunch of other animations. You can order tickets in advance here.
My contribution to the Rain City Engravers 2011 Calendar. Printed with the help of Russ Weicking & Laura Fox, proprietors of Mallemok Press. It was printed on a Vandercook which, many years ago printed newspapers. Thanks again guys!
Soundtrack provided by the great Larry Hanks singing an ancient cautionary tale called Tobacco.
I contributed a linocut illustration of the late, great poet, publisher and Fugs co-founder Tuli Kupferberg. Every issue of Yeti has been amazing and this one (#9) is no exception. It features a great interview with Alasdair Roberts, Bruce Conner, Indian music scholar VAK Ranga Rao, Maryanne Amacher, hilarious etched comics and a great soundtrack/cd comp with Rev. Lonnie Farris and an outtake from the debut album from the the late, great Bobby Charles
