Dance of Death – Day & Night

I wanted to make a skeleton print which has a white line and black line version on the same plate.

The concepts were either solid black with incised skeleton on one side and a line art skeleton on the other. I tried that but finally removed the background so there’s just a revered image skeleton.  I’ll have to upload a print at some point but for now here are the concept drawings and the final carved linocut.

Original concept with white line skeleton on solid background

Final concept removes the background and both skeletons are freestanding against a blank background

 

Final carved linocut block. I'll load a print at some point when I do a print run
