Post Safari Ideas

Sunrise glow

It’s been 6 weeks since returning from Africa and not a peep from me regarding the trip. I managed to take thousands of images which have still yet to be figured out. Some images have already been sent off to become a 2020 calendar, others are starting to form ideas for future printmaking endeavors. Friends and family are still waiting to view images and videos taken…. I’ll get there soon!

The journey was incredible and I’m already trying to figure out how to return for another safari. So worth all the planning and air travel!!

So, what’s on  my workbench? #1- a certain book that’s very overdue. #2- a rather LARGE print block. 34″ x 24″ to be exact! I’m still blocking in the basic dark parts and probably won’t start cutting until mid December depending on other projects, but it’s started!

Zebra with Oxpeckers first print will become a donation to the children’s group I support in Kenya. Hopefully my hands will be able to deal with the upcoming workout. Should be a fun experiment.

Hope you all are doing well and enjoying the change of season and anticipation of the upcoming holidays. Eventually I’ll get some safari photos up. Here’s a fun one while you wait…

  1. Somehow I missed this post. I love seeing your pictures from Africa and the start of a handsome Zebra. Looking forward to seeing how Africa influences your creativity.
