Dracula ACEO Reveal

I completed the carving of the lino for the Dracula ACEO. It’s Bela Lugosi as Dracula posing for his selfie in front of the Vegas sign – yes I know there’s more text on the real sign but the scale is really tiny so I went for just the city name.

ACEO = Art Cards, Editions, and Originals are a version of ATC (Artist Trading Cards) created with the intent to be sold. ATCs are normally traded between artists much like baseball trading cards.
The only rule for ACEO and ATC is that it must be 2..5″ x 3.5″ in size.

The lino is 2.5″ x 3.5″ and is meant to be printed on a trading card size paper. I’ll probably decorate the paper before over printing it. For now this is just a reveal of the finished lino. There’s some minor tweaks I want to make but otherwise I’m pretty happy

 

After the inkup in the video, I did a quick test print. I’ll do a new post of theĀ  final ACEO once it’s done.

Quick test print on copy paper. Needs very minor tweaks.
