As an artist that uses my hands quite a bit, I am ever grateful for them, but often worry about what would happen if I lost the ability to use my hands. The creature in the picture is without hands, dreaming of his holy, mighty existence with them as referenced by the halo and crown.  He imagines his hands, one with six fingers, just for good luck.


Edition of 100, printed on BFK Rives, 10″h x 8″w. Unframed.

Print Edition: Dreams of 11 Fingers

SKU: Print Edition: Dreams of 11 Fingers

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.
