In the midst of a print run…

Printing a complete line of cards, mini-prints, and bookmarks for spring orders as well as stocking my own shop shelves takes a while… When I started Norton’s Cove Studio almost ten years ago, working a 12 or 16 hour day was fairly common.  I’m not up to that anymore though- aches and pains and grumpiness come from long hours doing the same thing now that I’m forty.  So I take it slowly but surely.  One colour of ink per day, taking days off in between, and keeping up on other projects at the same time make for a much happier middle aged Janet!

Today we’ll (my mother, Ollie, is my co-worker again today) be printing black.

I’ve also added all the new images to the Norton’s Cove Cards product line page.  Have a look!


Icebergs in June: Day Four

Available at the Job Kean Shop
for $19.95 + GST

 Iceberg count on Day Four: zero. 

“Blue Ice is an illustrated biography based on the extraordinary diary of the late artist George A. Noseworthy. In 1970 he boarded the 253-foot “Chesley A. Crosbie” out of St. John’s, NL., bound for the ice-fields and the annual seal hunt off Northern Labrador and Newfoundland. Until this time, he was the only artist who had actually gone to “the front.”

Blue Ice dramatically records Noseworthy’s time in the wild. As he was portraying the life of the courageous sealers through his art, he was also recording the daily hunt in his journal.

Blue Ice is the true account of George Noseworthy’s passion for adventure – and the men of Newfoundland’s sealing industry whose bravery he immortalized in his art. ” ~Creative Publishing
