New Ukiyo-e style prints finally done.

Here's the zombie prints finally done. They're full bleed and two color reduction blocks (wood).  Each one I printed had different colors, which was a lot of fun to experiment with. Here's two samples, one on Unryu (a mixed fiber Japanese printmaking paper) and the other on Bogus recycled drawing paper.

The next piece I'm currently working on is supposed to be a continuation of the same theme. It just has to have some element from this one, but I don't think I will stick to the same art style. Instead I am going to go with the more Western "gig poster" style, and feature some sort of scene with a zombie or monster encounter. I might, however, reuse some of the patterns on the fabric.
