Winter Ghost by megamoth Winter Ghost by megamoth
This is actually from a year ago. (It's been a busy, busy year!)

Looking at this print always reminds me of Tom Waits' "Black Rider," since I listened to that album most of the time while I cut this block. It's the first print I've made since college... hopefully I will be able to make more soon...

Dig it. I see how it and Tom Waits could be related...

This is really good in every aspect. It reminds me of a panel from Hellboy, or a song by Big Business.

Nice. How do you like lino compared to woodblock?

megamoth Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
My first and only woodblock experience was with crap wood, so I can't really say either way. I'd like to work with wood more, but lino is more readily available at the moment. So uh... I'll let you know when I am more experienced ;)

Lino where I live is nigh impossible to find and prohibitively expensive. Wood on the other hand...expensive but no too terribl and easy to obtain. Baltic cedar I think is supposed to be the best wood for printmaking.

Good to know, I get the question a lot from customers at the art store. It has been one area where my printmaking knowledge is lacking.

Baltic birch, not baltic cedar. Knew that sounded wrong. Glad to be of assistance.

Beautiful! When I look at this some sad creepy music runs through my head. It seems like part of a story.

Thank you! That's kind of funny since I was listening to sad creepy music as I was making it. However Tom Waits is however a lot less sad and creepy than a lot of stuff we play in the studio...
