Pokemon Lincocuts

I've been doing some more linocuts lately, and have started using Pokemon as inspiration - they're fun and interesting, and there a hundreds of potential subjects to do if I decide to keep going with these. The one on the left is Magikarp (a notoriously weak and pitiful Pokemon), and the one on the right is Bulbasaur - although this isn't a photo of the actual print, but rather of the cut linoleum block before I've ever tried to pull a print from it. I plan to try and pull the first print from that block later today.

Carter has been baking a bunch lately, and recently made this beautiful and delicious focaccia bread. It's making my mouth water just looking at the photo!

More Linocuts

I've still been enjoying the linocut process quite a bit - it's very deliberate and relaxing. Here are a couple of recent ones I've completed. The one on the left is The Maxx (from an old show I used to watch on MTV in high school), and the one on the right is Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender (a show I've watched with my kids that is surprisingly awesome).

New Planters

A lot of our plants have been doing great with all of the extra sun they've been getting since I finished the planter stand for our big window. So I made a bunch of new planters that I could repot some of them into, as they were starting to outgrow their pots. This is just a sampling of some of the new ones.

Record Crate

Got a record player right after Christmas, and built this record album storage crate out of some old pallet wood I had leftover from the pallet that my lathe arrived on. I've only got a few records so far, but there's just something fun about them.
