Printmaking: "Larry's Dream"

I make block prints from linoleum from time to time (never as often as I’d like).
Here’s how I put together my latest printmaking project:
I wanted to do a print based on a dream I had some years ago.

 I used the original sketchbook drawing and added new elements (based on another dream !)

I traced the new composite drawing.

I transferred the tracing to a sheet of battleship linoleum–reversing the image.

 Then I cut the block. 

 I tend to print by hand rubbing with a soup spoon and a baren.

Finished print

Exhibited in the Spring Art Show
