Lookin' for Oddballs © wood engraving (ed. 40) image: 6 x 4 in. $95.00 (go to "Hi There" for purchase information)
There are countless oddballs running loose on the planet. Many have passed on to the great oddball retirement home in the sky. Once found, engraving the blocks of wood to create the matrix for the wood engraving prints is the hard part. It's especially hard on tired old eyes. A binocular magnifying head band helps immensely. Some would say that the king of oddballs would be the one who spends hours, days, weeks, months and years hunched over blocks of end-grain wood, using an eighteenth and nineteenth century process.
