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!
