This image is based on  my dog, Jack, when he was a wee puppy.  Eastern’s Outback Jack is a beautiful black Labrador Retriever from Eastern Kennels in the Goulds, near St. John’s.  Jack spends his days at the studio with me, and provides me with endless smiles and loyal companionship.

New Cards: First prints..

Labrador
Caplin
Codfish
Lobster
Polar Bear
Caribou

Eleanor [my trusty clean hand helper] and I printed about 100 cards yesterday, in yellow and red, including the six new designs.  [The colour here is a bit off- more of a candy apple red than the bright orange-red you see here!]  When I get more colours printed, I’ll have good scans for the card & mini-print page of the website…

New Cards and Minis in the Works

Starting 6 new plates for Norton’s Cove Cards & Mini-Prints.
Drawings first,  on paper and then transferred to linoleum with carbon paper.

The drawings are more defined with India ink- what’s black stays and what’s white gets carved away.

Labrador Puppy: Ready to be cleaned of the drawing material.

A replacement for my worn out & popular Caplin.

Two new images: Caribou and Lobster.

A replacement Codfish.

And a new one, a Polar Bear, still being carved.

I’m getting ready for a huge print run of these as well as my older images: Cod Jigger, Dory, Mussels, Salt Fish, Sand Dollar, Schooner, Spring Ice, Squid, Starfish, & Teapot.  Lots of paper needs to be cut first, and I need to count my current stock to make sure I print the things I don’t have lots of already.  For my wholesale customers out there, this is a great time to get your order in!
