New Art Project (Finally!)

For the first time in a few weeks I finally had a full day to just wander around the city, dream up new ideas, and actually sit down and make something.  It was such a good feeling to work on an art project again after such a long stretch of focusing on other things.

I've been researching some small, folded book designs, but I needed some new content to fill up the structures before I could start making them. Also, after weeks of pen and ink sketching, I really wanted to focus on creating something that could produce a repeatable image rather than one drawing that I'm scared to mess up by adding text to it.

The first block is a little anatomical heart.  I used the sketch that I included in the centre of Pax Familia as the base drawing.  I liked it so much in the earlier piece that I wanted to have a print that I could use multiple times.

The second is.... surprise!  Another maze!  A tiny maze actually.  Every time I start one of these mazes I remember how horrible they are to carve.  However, I love the mazes so much and I wanted a little one to use on cards, mini books, etc. 

It's a bit too late to test them tonight, but I'll try some prints tomorrow and post the results.
