Another artist on Etsy, Beadoodle, posted a really nice quote in the Etsy forums about setting goals, and that got me thinking about the prints I sell. Most of my prints are the same size, and therefore about the same price. This is completely related to the previous post about framing. If I make art that's all the same size, I don't have to buy 13 different frame sizes.
I thought it would be interesting to try and develop a series of smaller prints. The picture at the top is a proof of a block print I started last night. It's the first of what I hope will be a series of botanical prints. I had mixed feelings about starting with such an iconic fungus, but part of why Amanita muscaria shows up in every storytale illustration is that it's so bold and graphic. And those qualities are excellent fodder for linocut.
