At the Mountains of Madness


One of my interests over the years has been printmaking.
Above is a "suicide print" I did a few years back, entitled
At the Mountains of Madness.
The odd term "suicide print" comes from the fact that only one block is used to produce the entire print. After printing each layer, one carves away that portion of the block which printed the desired color, repeating the process for each color. In the end, the image on the block has been destroyed by the process.
