American Bison seem like gentle giants, but every summer tourists prove this wrong, as they approach too close to the immensely powerful beasts. I hope that humans continue to admire wildlife from afar, knowing that our presence can add stress or intimidation.  Part of a mini-print series featuring large mammals of the Rocky Mountain Region.

This piece is a "relief engraving.” It is in the block print or relief family of printmaking, which refers to two surfaces, one lower than the other, so that the highest surface prints. I hand carve each image with small but tough tools called burins, or gravers. The remaining surface is rolled with ink and pressed through the printing press. Each print taken from the plate is part of an edition, and numbered. My limited editions are always under 100 since they are inked and cranked by hand on my printing press.  Printed on 100% Cotton Rag Paper.
