Is he done yet?

The border collie named Rogue has been in the works for a year now and I’m happy to report he’s almost done!


He’s certainly come a long way in the past couple of weeks. Today’s state proof is close to completion. Part of me is wanting to pop out a bit more white on his closer leg and to clean up stray bits on his face. Right now I need to clean up the workspace and block before the cat comes back downstairs. Oil-based ink and cats don’t mix!

It would be kind of fun to chine-colle the ball…ย  For those of you who don’t know what that process is, it’s basically a way to add an additional piece of colored paper into the print during the printing process.ย  It’s also been fun to stamp color using a stencil.

We shall see where the muse takes me! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Each time I think you can’t make him any better, you do! You are so talented my friend. I’m not going to let Annie see your work or she’ll demand her own! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I can always add her to the queue and maybe, one day, she too will be a print!
      Rogue is almost there… there have been a few surprises with inking.
      Hang in there this week!
